Ralph Fiennes delivers an extraordinary tour de force in T S Eliot’s final masterpiece which offers four interwoven meditations on the nature of time, faith and the quest for spiritual enlightenment. Mostly written during the Second World War when the closure of the playhouses during the Blitz interrupted Eliot’s work in theatre, Four Quartets contains some of the most exquisite and unforgettable reflections upon surviving periods of national crisis.
Ralph Fiennes is bringing his extraordinary performance of T .S. Eliot’s masterwork to the West End. This powerful recitation of modernist poetry began life at Theatre Royal Bath and toured the UK. Now, it’s coming to London’s Harold Pinter Theatre, and it’s a tour-de-force turn from one of our greatest thespians. Plan your trip now and book your Four Quartets tickets.
Eliot’s poem offers dazzling meditations on the big existential questions, like our relationship with time, the universe, faith and the divine. It was coloured by the Second World War, including the poet’s own experiences as a watchman during the Blitz, and so also digs into how our nation might survive such a conflict and emerge from it — potentially with a new religious understanding.
Fiennes, who created, directs and stars in this Four Quartets play, has spoken about how it struck him anew during the pandemic, as we all grappled with what time meant in that strange, suspended year, and looked for new meaning in our disrupted lives. He also gave incredible support to regional theatre by touring the play around the country, beginning at Theatre Royal Bath. Now, we get a very welcome Four Quartets West End run.
Similarly to the regional tour, the Four Quartets London run will benefit from design by Hildegard Bechtler, lighting design by Tim Lutkin, sound design by Christopher Shutt, and creative production from James Dacre. All are supporting Fiennes’s vision, and this is a rare opportunity to see the incredible actor hold the stage solo for 75 minutes. Don’t miss out: make sure you book your Four Quartets tickets without delay.
