With Martin Wimbush.

Actor Martin Wimbush’s one-man celebration of two of our greatest poets, Philip Larkin and John Betjeman, with essays by Alan Bennett, is a masterful and moving performance.

Part play, part soliloquy, the inspiration came from Alan Bennett’s book, Six Poets from Hardy to Larkin: ‘The more I read the poems that Bennett was describing,’ says Martin, ‘the more I felt I wanted to perform them.’

Known for parts in The Iron Lady and Upstairs, Downstairs, Martin describes performing in a one-man show as walking a tightrope: ‘Hearing an audience listening to every word is one of the great joys of being an actor.’
