‘Poetry is truth in its Sunday clothes.’ – Joseph Roux

Sunday. A day of sighed reflection and addiction? Of hangovers, shopping malls and hard decisions made while putting the lawnmower away. Of love, hate and redemption.

Join A Firm of Poets for a performance of twenty-four poems spanning midnight to midnight on the seventh day. From Manningham to New Orleans, Melbourne to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, everything changes come Sunday.

Featuring writing and performances from Bradford’s Kirsty Taylor and A Firm of Poets co-founder, Ralph Dartford. Directed by Matt Abbott.
