Join Caribbean-British poet John Agard in a quirky re-visioning of the notorious New World Enterprise of Christopher Columbus. A voyage in verse, performed against an evocative soundscape of Atlantic murmurings, with Agard variously taking on the voices of Columbus, The Atlantic Ocean and a chorus of politically conscious mosquitoes. Directed by Mark C. Hewitt, musical backing by Thomas Arnold, and produced by Crosspath Theatre and Tilt, this is a one-person show that mixes the tides of cabaret and calypso with mischievous satirical wit.
"A unique and energetic force in contemporary British poetry, John Agard's poems combine acute social observation, puckish wit and a riotous imagination to thrilling effect." - Ben Wilkinson
