I Am John Clare

I Am John Clare. One night with a poet in a madhouse. Theatre17 presents a solo performance drama written by Stephen Loveless with Robin Hillman as Clare. On the night of 8th March 1860, we join the Northamptonshire peasant poet in Northampton General Lunatic Asylum after he has written a tormented reply to a well-wisher’s letter. John Clare shares with the audience his search for identity and for why he is shut away.

Tickets are free, though you may make a donation. The show lasts around 50 minutes and will be followed by a q & a session with the author and the actor.
