One of the greatest of modern plays, Waiting for Godot remains a challenge for interpreters.
Two figures wait for a vaguely rendered entity named Godot,
and both he/she/it and the waiting itself become metaphoric.

T. S. Eliot and John Farrell

The Rogue Theatre
in collaboration with Figures of Speech Theatre
presents


Four Quartets

A RECITATION FROM MEMORY OF T.S. ELIOT’S POETIC MASTERWORK

Sunday, February 1, 2015, 2:00 P.M.
One Performance Only
The Rogue Theatre

Tickets: $20, available at our Web store or by calling the Rogue Box Office at 520-551-2053

An unquestioned masterpiece of 20th-century literature, T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets is a complex, deeply moving meditation on time, memory, and human striving toward the divine.

Eliot completed Four Quartets in 1941, as Britain slid into the abyss of World War II, and he feared that civilization itself might perish in the coming years. Writing at the height of his artistic powers, Eliot packed into the four long poems a summation of his views on poetry and art, on mystical experience, and on humankind’s relationship to history and time.

In 2011, with rarely granted permission of the Eliot Estate, John Farrell of Figures of Speech Theatre committed to memory the one-thousand lines of Eliot’s masterpiece and prepared them for performance. John’s recitation of Four Quartets affords audiences an opportunity to immerse themselves in these gorgeous lines of poetry, spoken from memory, and renew their understanding of one the 20th century's most exceptional poets.

Jerusalem reminds us of the primal forces of mystical places, the taming effects of civilization,
