On the 17th and 18th February (Thursday and Friday of this week), Keith will be appearing in the play "The Unknown Land" at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guilford.

The Unknown Land is a compelling tale of extreme survival telling the tale of one man's journey to the end of the earth and deep inside his own mind.

"The year is 1844. Samuel Straw is the last survivor of an expedition to find the Northwest Passage. Why did he answer a newspaper advertisement inviting him to join a ship bound for the unknown wastes north of Greenland? How did the loneliness, the strength-sapping treks across the ice and the merciless cold change him forever? How were the certainties of his early life challenged as he faced such a bleak environment?

Samuel's story is told by one actor (David Fredrickson) playing many characters and a musician playing (Keith Kendrick) the traditional songs of land and sea. It's a story inspired by true accounts of nineteenth century Arctic exploration, Inuit mythology and the fatal attraction of the Polar Regions."

It is a really good play and I promise you will enjoy it. Don't just take my word for it, SeaJane (hope you don't mind me quoting you) said "Went to see this in Bristol on Saturday. Stunning!".

Cheers

Sylvia

Sorry to be picky, but it's Guildford (with a 'd') - Guilford is a US publisher.

Of course. I just thought it might help if anyone tried googling it.

Thanks for that Topsie.

The "blue clicky thing" should have gone at the beginning of a line (it takes you to the page on the theatre's website with details of the play), so here it is again.

It's not out of the question, Dave.

Although music and song that Keith plays and sings is an integral part of the play, it's very much a theatrical piece. However, All the folkies I know who have seen it, have thoroughly enjoyed it. This could be in part because the playwright, Caroline Small, is herself a folkie and she sings. She did a lot of research and has woven some traditional Inuit stories into the play.

We'll keep you updated on progress.

Cheers

Sylvia

PS The Yvonne Arnaud Mill Studio is easily accessible on foot from the railway station if that would be your preferred means of travelling - around five minutes' walk away.(And you can book your tickets online).
Be aware though that the advertised price of £11 is not what you will end up paying - there is a 50p Theatre Development fund extra, and a 50p booking fee that gets added to the cost ... making £12. (But I'm sure it should be well worth it).

Having seen the performance at Lancaster (was that the furthest North?), I can highly recommend it!
