Set in Harrar, Abyssinia, in 1890, shortly before the poet’s death at the age of 37. this is a most atmospheric drama with challenging roles for actors.It deals with an extraordinary period of Rimbaud’s life.The play finds the legendary poet in Africa, forsaking his art for a life of commerce and adventure.It asks two questions: What happens when a poet who calls himself a slave suddenly finds himself in the heart of human slavery? And how can an artiststop being an artist? A two-act drama for a multicultural cast of eight.
