'We were monarchs here; giants in a giant land'
This is a play inspired by the poem of the same name by Edwin Muir
There are times in everyone’s life when we’re faced with the possibility that our lives might become part of a bigger story.’ So comments the poet Edwin Muir on his poem, ‘The Horses'.
For Steve and Chloe that moment has arrived. But what will happen to their own hopes and dreams? And who are the watchers on the cliff top? And why are they there? There is mystery inherent in our relationship with nature, but there is often a similar mystery in our relationship with each other.
This play previewed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 and appears here in a completely rewritten version.
