Out of his Head
Kenneth Price: One-man play on the life of poet W S Graham
This event took place on Sun 22 March
The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street – Studio Theatre
Scottish poet W S Graham lived for much of his life in Cornwall, often in great poverty, and achieved little recognition for his writing until after his death. Kenneth Price offers a portrait of the poet as a person of both dignity and passion. Much of the play focuses on Graham's friendships with painters and above all on his love for Nessie Dunsmuir.
