This play moves back and forth between 1809 and the present, at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family.
The 1809 scenes reveal a household in transition. As the Arcadian landscape is being transformed into picturesque Gothic gardens, complete with a hermit, 13-year old Thomasina and her tutor delve into intellectual and romantic issues.
Present day scenes depict the Coverly descendants and two competing scholars who are researching a possible scandal at the estate in 1809, involving Lord Byron.
This brilliant play is pure entertainment for the heart, mind and soul. It is a work shot through with fun, passion and genius.
Directed by Library Manager Mr John Cummins and featuring a cast of 12 talented senior students, this is a play definitely worth seeing.
There are three performance dates; Tuesday, 16 June, Wednesday, 17 June and Thursday 18 June at 7.00pm in the King's College Great Hall.Click here to purchase your tickets
