Being a Poet in a Play...


Steve Hetherington, a long-time member of The Club who plays the poet, explains: “The comedy in this play comes from the lady’s view of men who write poems, and the difference in stations of the poet, his man servant (played by Stephan Ermel), and his lady. I feel that it also comes from the ingenious set design created by Bill Cochrane which brings real focus to the books that the poet so loves. I have really enjoyed working on this production, not least because of the crazy costume that I need to wear...can you say purple pants!”
