“It takes real skill to take a sturdy piece of classic literature and turn it into one of the most imaginative shows of the year.” Andrew Clarke, reviewing our production of The Count of Monte Cristo in the EADT

 

After their acclaimed productions of The Old Curiosity Shop & Sherlock Holmes and The Hooded Lance in 2017, COMMON GROUND THEATRE COMPANY return with this enthralling, surreal musical adaptation of Coleridge's gothic fantasy, The Rime of The Ancient Mariner, with its strong message of respect for all living things, and its investigation into man’s creative – and destructive urges. Its publication in 1792 heralded the arrival of the Romantic movement in England, and has held a place in the common consciousness ever since, inspiring generations of artists, writers and film-makers.

 

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, film and original music by Pat Whymark, sung by a live choir. Coleridge is played by Richard Lounds & The Mariner by Julian Harries (New Wolsey Theatre, Colchester Mercury, RSC, National Theatre, Shared Experience, West End)
