Man and Boy explored in poetry performance

By January 10, 2012 September 7th, 2016 York

Northern punk poet Henry Raby is staging a self-penned, interactive performance on the theme of connecting the experience of different generations.



‘Letter To The Man (from the boy)” has been developed by Raby in conjunction with Tom Bellerby of Pilot Theatre.  The piece fuses the poetry about the poet’s growing up and the opportunity for theatre goers to compose their own notes to their future selves from a child’s perspective.


Bellerby speaks of his delight in bringing Raby’s work to the stage: “It’s a unique piece that not only presents Henry’s brilliantly honest, comic and intelligent poetry; but also gives the audience a chance to reflect on their memories past and present and their wants for the future in a gentle, non-threatening way”.


‘Letter To The Man (from the boy)’ is staged at the following venues:




1 – Leeds, University Workshop Theatre

2 – Leeds, University Workshop Theatre

10 – York, The Basement at City Screen


The Leeds shows are free but places are limited, while the York gig has an admission charge of £4.  Further details about ‘Letter To The Man (from the boy)’ can be found on Henry Raby’s website.
