The Waste Land by T S Eliot will be performed by Fiona Shaw at Wilton’s Music Hall from Wed 30 December to Sunday 10th January 2010. The Waste Land is directed by Deborah Warner, with lighting by Jean Kalman. The production, which forms part of the 150th year celebrations of Wilton’s Music Hall was presented there for a sold out run in 1997 and also at the Liberty Theater in New York in 1996.

The Waste Land was published in 1922 and is regarded as one of the most important poems of the 20th century, with many phrases that have entered the language, such as “April is the cruellest month” and “I will show you fear in a handful of dust”.

Fiona Shaw is currently playing the title role in Bertolt Brecht’s ‘Mother Courage’, directed by Deborah Warner, at the National Theatre. She starts rehearsals as Lady Gay Spanker in Dion Boucicault’s ‘London Assurance’, directed by Nicholas Hytner, at the National on 18 January 2010.

Deborah Warner is currently directing Handel’s ‘The Messiah’ for the ENO at the Coliseum, opening on 27 November.
