WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A world premiere set in the thick of the modernist era, Waste Land is a tragicomedy that lays bare the tumultuous love between T.S. Eliot and his first wife and muse, Vivienne. As he writes the poem that would be his masterpiece, a circle of notable friends — Ezra Pound, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, and Bertrand Russell — populate his life with witty banter, biting commentary, and moments of joy and self-doubt that inform all of their work. Waste Land is a moving investigation of Eliot's life, loves, friendships, and torments.
