Wild as the White Waves

The Swallow Theatre Whithorn

Wild as the White Waves

 The Swallow Theatre, Whithorn, DG8 8DR

 Fri 6th March 2020


It is the 19th of October 1950, at Steepletop, a remote farmhouse in the pinewoods of upstate New York. Through the early hours of the morning, Edna St Vincent Millay drinks and reminisces, sharing the highs and lows of her tumultuous life.
The first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, she was an icon for Dorothy Parker and the Greenwich Village set in 1920's New York, an accomplished pianist, a translator of French and Latin verse, a political activist, a drug addict and an alcoholic. 
Interspersed with excerpts from her poetry and letters, Wild as The White Waves is an intimate, witty and moving encounter with a remarkable woman who resonates as powerfully today as she did in her own lifetime.
