Experience an immersive new sound play from Palimpsest this winter at the National Trust’s Red House.

Encounter themes of loss and longing in the 1860s as the sensory drama is presented twice each night through audio and live actors. A range of tales will be explored as you roam freely throughout the arts and crafts enclave, complete with drink in hand.

Atmospheric, ghostly and unspeakably sad, ‘If I Can’ is a narrative poem, fusing the extant shards of poetry and prose of those Pre-Raphaelites that built and embellished Red House.

With Red House populated by Palimpsest actors in character costumes, you will choose whom to follow as their lives spool out; as if the very walls could speak and give up their secrets. Performances dates are: 26 November, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18 December 7:30pm & 8:30pm and tickets are £25 each.

“This is a unique and exciting new way to experience the stories of one of the most influential groups of artists and the house they created together.”
Robynn Finney, House & gardens Manager, Red House

‘If I Can’ is written by Katherine Tozer for Palimpsest, with music and sound by John Chambers.
