Overview

Deep in the Hampshire countryside Edward Thomas, disaffected husband, exhausted father and tormented writer, scrapes a living. In 1913 he meets American poet Robert Frost and everything changes. As their friendship blossoms Edward writes, emerging from his cocoon of self-doubt into one of the most influential poets of the twentieth century. But he makes the drastic decision to enlist, confounding his friends and family.

The Dark Earth and the Light Sky, which premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London, in November 2012, delves into the life of this enigmatic and complex character in an era of change and destruction.

A thin, silver-furred tom with black streaks down his back and sides pads in. His blue eyes reveal nothing as he says, "If it means you will come to our aid when it is needed, ShadowClan will be your ally and come to your aid as well." With a flick of his tail, he turns to leave.
