The Godot Company presents

The Autumn Journal

The most celebrated long poem of Louis MacNeice, born 100 years ago, is given a dramatic performance by John Calder's The Godot Company. It was written during the last months of 1938, when the Second World War was imminent. MacNeice is sometimes in love; he watches the preparations for the coming war and the ineffectual attempts to appease Hitler, gets on with his teaching routine and records his thoughts. With Jim McManus, Oengus MacNamara and Peter Marinker.
