William Blake: Letters from Heaven and Hell

William Blake: Letters from Heaven and Hell

"A Last Judgement is necessary because fools flourish."

Directed by KENNETH JAY

Poet, painter and visionary William Blake is our most misunderstood National Treasure. From verbatim prose, poetry and letters come searing passions that soar across the centuries to speak to us directly from a distant world uncannily like our own. Blake urges us along a delightfully engaging journey over the stepping stones of our imaginations, to inspire with passion, joy, elegance and humour, our spiritual survival and ascent in this impossibly challenging modern age.

Curated and performed by Kenneth Jay, whose extensive stage career includes the West End productions of Cool Hand Luke, Indian Ink and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
