Event Summary

After their acclaimed productions of The Old Curiosity Shop& Sherlock Holmes and The Hooded Lancein 2017, Common Ground Theatre Company return with this enthralling, slightly surreal music-theatre adaptation of Coleridge's The Rime of The Ancient Mariner, with its themes of ecological disaster, man's destructive compulsions, and the death and rebirth of imagination and faith.

The Mariner looks at episodes from the extraordinary life of Samuel Taylor Coleridge in the context of his most famous poem, and examines how an artist’s work can be seen as an allegory for their life story. The Rime has a strangely prophetic relevance to Coleridge himself, but for the reader, has the wider themes of ecological disaster, our own destructive compulsions, and the death and rebirth of imagination.

The show will feature live action, puppetry, film and original music by Pat Whymark, sung by a live choir. The Mariner will be played by Julian Harries.
