If I Can.
A major National Trust commission, first created for performance at William Morris’ Red House.
Atmospheric, ghostly and unspeakably sad, If I Can is a narrative poem, fusing the extant shards of poetry and prose of those Pre-Raphaelites that built and embellished Red House.
Covering themes of loss and longing in the 1860s, the production is presented through an innovative new form; an audio drama delivered by MP3 player. The audience ranges around this Arts and Crafts gem, free to roam at will, drink in hand.
The property is populated by Palimpsest actors, in character and in costume. You are able to choose whom to follow as their lives spool out; as if the very walls could speak and give up their secrets.
Written by Katherine Tozer with music & sound by John Chambers.
