Simon Schama: The Wordy Tour

02/06/2019 - 02/06/2019


Description

Can words still pack a punch in the reign of Twitter? Have the carriers of thought, the deliverers of argument, the elements of poetry, the sounds that make us human – lost their force in the age of short attention span? Simon Schama has lived in the house of words for half a century – as historian, art critic, broadcaster and journalist. He has spun the web of words in big books and tight essays; he’s done stand up in Chicago and live cook shows on TV.  Now he has a new collection of writing on everything from Falstaff to Leonard Cohen, pomegranates to populism. You can hear his words on stage at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on June 2nd. Presented by Fane Productions as part of the ‘Sunday Encounters at the Haymarket’ season.
