Guest Blog: Robert Bathurst On LOVE, LOSS & CHIANTI at Riverside Studios
by Marianka Swain - Jan 27, 2020

I've relished the blank stares I've received when discussing this project. The only way to get people onside has been to perform it at any opportunity - in try-outs at art galleries, pubs, clubs, an orangery, theatres. Anywhere just to get it on its hind legs and show people that the poet Christopher Reid's writing can connect instantly with an audience; his wit, clarity, sumptuous phrasing, high emotion and, I believe, superhuman ability to express feelings which most of us cannot articulate. I'd read his publications A Scattering and The Song Of Lunch in 2010, and immediately thought they could be performed live.
