In Search of love to infinity and beyond.
A new adaptation my Mike Maran.
“Mike Maran, you have invented a genre in which you can cram your whole huge heart.” The Scotsman.
An almost unabridged journey through Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso in search of Beatrice. Will Mike Maran’s adaptation be as blasphemously offensive as Dante’s sublime poem? Will Mike get Dante’s girl? A mad flight of mesmerising medieval stand-up.
Written 700 years ago The Divine Comedy sits at the pinnacle of Western civilization, one of the most influential works of literature composed by poetry’s most powerful practitioner. In this new adaptation Mike Maran joins Dante in the quest for the meaning of love.
Following on from John Muir Rhapsody in Green last year we can’t wait to welcome Mike Maran back to Stapleford Granary. If you have seen him before (Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, John Muir – Rhapsody in Green, Novecento, Italia ‘n’ Caledonia) you’ll know what to expect. If you haven’t seen him before you’re in for a treat.
