Poets’ Corner


James Huntrods has lucked-out with his venue… the dark and damp brick arches of The Caves at Just the Tonic form the perfect backdrop for Poets’ Corner, a play set predominantly in the south transept of Westminster Abbey. It’s the spot where numerous writers and poets are commemorated or buried – only they won’t stay buried. They all get together regularly for drinks and nibbles, and Charles Dickens puts up the decorations.

The dialogue is quick and comic, hugely entertaining stuff – the back and forth between Oscar Wilde and Lord Byron is worth the price of admission alone. Rachel from the WT takes the lead role as Jane, the latest poet at the party. The question is, what is she doing there? She is isn’t dead.

poetsPlaying at Just the Tonic / Caves 2 every day (except the 18th)  at 13.40 until the 23rd August. Admission is £5 to £7 and you can book tickers here.
