About A Grain Of Sand In Lambeth and extracts from reviews

 A Grain Of Sand In Lambeth explores a major crisis in the life of the poet, painter, engraver and visionary, William Blake.

 

It had its first perfomance at the Landor Theatre in Clapham in October 2002.

It has since been seen at the Wimbledon Studio Theatre, Pentameters Theatre, Cheltenham Everyman Studio, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the ACT Theatre, Kingston College.

It is available to tour during 2014



"This is gutsy....a testament to an actor and writer truly devoted to his subject....I  think there is an important lesson here in this quiet, loving and well-worked-through production. If we are to resurrect our poets and put them on film or stage, we should take our cue from what we value most about them: their poetry."              
Shirley Dent, CultureWars.

".... in the mould of Simon Callow's "Mystery Of Charles Dickens"...the RSC actor's enthusiasm and knowledge of his subject is clearly vast....Blake tells of his trial for sedition, of his comparative poverty.....with a quiet vigour that is memorable and subtle."
ThreeWeeks, Edinburgh.

"This was an intense and powerful performance. It left me with an urgency to look back further at Blake's work".                                                                                                          Gloucestershire Echo
