31ST MARCH - 14TH APRIL
by Dianna Lefas
The Last Nightingale comes to Highgate direct from a successful New York off-Broadway run. It is appropriate that the play is being staged Upstairs at the Gatehouse as The Gatehouse Pub was a well known meeting place for the Hampstead and Highgate poets. Samuel Taylor Coleridge, a Highgate resident, would often invite Percy Shelley, Lord Byron & John Keats to The Gatehouse to indulge in poetry readings, philosophical conversation and the occasional glass of stout!
John Keats (1795-1821) was a medical student at Guy's Hospital in London with only one passion burning in his heart - poetry - until he met 18 year old Fanny Brawne. She became for him the embodiment of all that was truth and beauty, a quest that propelled much of his young adult life. It is not, however, until tragedy strikes that he is forced to open his heart in favour of this deepening love.
