Readings from the play ‘The Castaway’

Sunday, September 16, 2012 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

A one man play by renowned actor and playwright David Gooderson about the life of William Cowper. Cowper was a fascinating character: dissolute law student, ‘hell-fire’ preacher, witty poet, manic depressive and one of the most renowned literary characters of the eighteenth century.

Watch David Gooderson perform excerpts from his play in the beautiful surroundings of the Cowper and Newton Museum gardens followed by a drinks reception in Cowper’s own courtyard. This is a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity to see this play performed in Cowper’s own house and gardens! This event promises to be a unique and exceptional experience!
