Jeremy Irons will be a reader on Tuesday 31 May and Max Irons will be a reader on Thursday 2 June.

Following the success of her readings for the T.S. Eliot Festival in 2009, Josephine Hart makes a welcome return to the Donmar to produce and direct a week of poetry featuring a series of special readings with some of the country’s leading actors. She will devote each performance to the works of one or two poets, introducing and setting their poems in the context of their life. “The idea is simple,” Hart says, “an understanding of the life and philosophy of the poet illuminates the poetry and therefore makes the experience of reading or listening to each poem more intense.”

Readers  for Poetry Week:

Monday 30 May: Philip Larkin – Too clever to Live? – Charles Dance & Dan Stevens.

Tuesday 31 May: John Milton – Simply Sublime (2.30pm and 7.30pm) Emilia Fox, Jeremy Irons, Felicity Kendal, Dan Stevens.
