A two hundred and fourteen year-old poem brought on stage in 2012. The celebrated Fiona Shaw returns to Epidaurus – to the Little Theatre this time – inspired by England’s quintessential Romantic poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge.Charismatic and exuberant, Coleridge (1772-1883) was anything but a conformist. Rejecting the literary strictures of his age, he would prove himself a genuine forerunner of Modernism, combining a poetic imagination and unfailing creativity with critical thinking. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner  uses its hero’s voyage to Antarctica  to chart Man’s wanderings through  the world in search of meaning.
