The Remarkable Story of Robert Desnos
Funny, tragic, uplifting and moving. Held captive in a concentration camp, prisoners tell fantastical tales to lift their spirits. Their clandestine gatherings allow them briefly to forget the terrible reality of the camp and use the power of language and imagination to simply change reality. Drawn from the real life experiences of the French surrealist poet, Robert Desnos, the stories are told with wit and dynamic physicality by Clare Muireann Murphy and Daniel Morden, who is renowned for his passionate, masterful performances.
The performance is in two halves with an interval
