Pentameters is proud to present, as part of its 40th anniversary, a double bill of short one-act plays in memory of the renowned playwright and poet ROBERT CALVERT who died 20 years ago.

Cattle at Twilight, here premiered, is a fantasy about Noel Coward and Hendrix set in a celestial zone.

The Stars that Play with Laughing Sam's Dice, premiered at Pentameters in 1976 with a set designed by Barney Bubbles, portrays Sergeant McNully and Jimi's last parachute jump in 1961.

The performance also features the newly re-discovered poem of Robert's entitled Blue Grow The Rushes O.

These plays are directed and produced by Léonie Scott-Matthews, who first presented Robert Calvert at Pentameters in 1969 reading from his play The Box. He subsequently read his poetry there over the years.

Jonson Wilkinson plays Noel Coward, Jeff Mash (from Seattle – Hendrix's birthplace) Sergeant McNully, and Jason Julien–Connage Jimi Hendrix. The set is designed by Godfrey Old, with sound design by Godfrey Old in collaboration with Edward Roumfort.

Wednesday 10th September until Saturday 20th September (no Monday performance). There will also be a performance of these two plays at the Robert Calvert Memorial Concert in Herne Bay on 28 September.

Tuesday – Saturday 8.00pm. Sunday 5.00pm. No show on Monday.

Tickets £12. Concession £10. Box Office/Press +44 (0)207 435 3648.

Dear Reader,

This is a shameless bump to remind you that the performances of the Robert Calvert plays start on Wednesday at Pentameters Theatre, London. Looking forward to seeing some of you there.

All good wishes,

Did the theatre show that play about 20 years ago? I remember seeing it.
