This show has performances in multiple locations


Kenneth Wilson performs a solo show of dramatic poetry from his 2019 collection, The Definitions of Kitchen Verbs, abetted and illustrated with solo airs, ballads and Bach beautifully performed on the cello. He tells a moving tale of love, hope, despair, adultery, and general all-round hopelessness. 'This venture, brave or foolish, faced as bonded lovers, softly forms us, molten, into birds that fly through water, fish that skim the sky'. 'An amazing performance. Great poetry. Powerful stuff' (Richard Farncombe, Music in the Wood).
