Genome: [r4 Bd=19921111]

In Robin Brooks 's play, Robert is a dreamer. He cannot stop himself travelling back in time to hold imaginary conversations about the early 19th-century poets, Shelley, Keats and Byron, with people who were close to them. His domestic life goes tragically wrong, but can he bring himself back to the real world long enough to save it? Director Tim Gebbels Stereo
