T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets

  • Share:
Name: T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets
Date: February 15, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST
Event Description:
John Farrell memorized T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets––all eight hundred and ninety-one lines of it––in 2011. On February 15, at 7:00 pm, at the Merrill Memorial Library in Yarmouth, Maine, Farrell, the Artistic Director of Figures of Speech Theatre (FST), will recite this poetic masterwork from memory.

The performance, which lasts one hour and twenty minutes without intermission, affords the audience the opportunity to immerse themselves in Eliot's language for a truly unique, meditative experience. The performance—with guest Carl Dimow, playing the original flute interludes he composed for the recitation—is free and open to all.

FST is currently scheduling additional dates for a performing tour to Maine Libraries in 2018, with dates already scheduled in Waldo, Hancock, York, Lincoln & Cumberland counties. Librarians from around the state received a sneak preview when Farrell recited Little Gidding, one of Eliot’s Four Quartets, at the Annual Maine Librarians Association Conference.

The tour of Four Quartets is generously supported with support from private foundations as well as a Maine Theater Fund Grant from the Maine Community Foundation, in addition to an Arts & Humanities Grant awarded this summer by the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets will be presented on February 15, 2018 at 7:00 pm Merrill Memorial Library at 215 Main Street in Yarmouth, Maine. Admission is free and open to all. For more information, please call the library directly at (207) 846-4763.

Additional dates are available for FST's 2018 Maine Library Tour and the company encourages interested libraries to contact them at 207-865-6355. More information about FST, a Freeport-based theater company founded in 1982, is available on their website:
