Pontine Theatre presents a rare opportunity to hear the entirety of T.S. Eliot’s poetic masterpiece, Four Quartets, spoken live by actor and poet John Farrell, artistic director and co-founder of Figures of Speech Theatre. In 2011, with special permission from the Eliot Estate, Farrell premiered a one-man recitation of Four Quartets, Eliot’s complex, deeply moving meditation on the human spirit, time and memory. Farrell has since toured the performance to theaters and other venues in the US and Canada.
