John Farrell memorized T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets –all eight hundred and ninety-one lines of it– in 2011 and now recites this poetic masterwork from memory. The recitation, which lasts one hour and twenty minutes without intermission, affords the audience the opportunity to immerse themselves in Eliot's language for a truly unique, meditative experience.

This tour of Four Quartets has received generous support from private foundations, a Maine Theater Fund Grant from the Maine Community Foundation, and an Arts & Humanities Grant awarded by the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
