Word Takes Wing by Wyvern

An original folk-drama adapted from Hardy's notebooks

Wednesday 24th April at Dorchester Corn Exchange

An original folk-drama drawing on the notebooks of writer Thomas Hardy
comes to Dorchester Arts on Wednesday 24 April at 8pm.

In a private journal he recorded reports and anecdotes from local
papers and magazines such as the Dorset County Chronicle that amused
or interested him. They tell of 19th century lives and dreams, hopes
and despair, love and laughter.

Musicians and actors of the group Wyvern have traced snippets and
jottings that Hardy wove into his poems and novels, where the words
have 'taken wing' from dry prose to rich imaginative literature. These
extraordinary stories, always observant and often quirky are brought
to life through carefully chosen extracts, lively music and dramatic
