Sam Rowe: Denton & Me

part of LGBT History month

Tue 24 - Wed 25 Feb 2015 | 7.30pm | £6/£4 | 18+

“When you long with all your heart for someone to love you, a madness grows which shakes all sense from the trees and the water and the Earth. And nothing lives for you, except the deep bitter want.”

1944: Diarist Denton Welch writes with astonishing honesty about his obsession for a chaotic land-boy named Eric Oliver.

2011: A young writer is given the diaries by a family friend and discovers echoes of the past within his own life.

Weaving together Denton Welch’s deeply moving story with his own autobiography, Sam Rowe presents a poignant yet humorous reflection upon loneliness and longing.

Denton & Me is the debut solo show from theatre-maker Sam Rowe (director and dramaturg on Robert Softley’s “outstanding” If These Spasms Could Speak*).

A disarming piece of writing by a powerful new voice in Scottish theatre.
