Theatre review: The Dark Earth and the Light Sky
Dear's play shows us three of Thomas' (Pip Carter) most significant relationships: With his wife Helen (Hattie Morahan) and their friend Eleanor Farjeon (Pandora Colin,) a minor writer who's in love with him. And, as the play begins, Thomas meets the legendary American poet Robert Frost (Shaun Dooley,) still virtually unknown at this point, who encourages him to move on from reviewing poetry to writing his own.
The Dark Earth and the Light Sky by Nick Dear is booking until the 12th of January at the Almeida Theatre.
Running time: 2 hours 15 minutes including interval.
