Teacups, cricket whites and cucumber sandwiches: Robert Ray's Poems glows with nostalgic charm and is the perfect antidote to modern stress. It's set to the music of English composer Jim Parker and the poems of John Betjeman, the reminiscences of an older man looking back to the loves of his youth, like the bold bike-riding Myfanwy, "Ringleader, tom-boy, and chum to the weak." 

See Poems as part of our Regional Tour in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia this winter.
