William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron and Dorothy Wordsworth get drunk, hang out, and brood in England and the Swiss Alps. They argue over poetry, the possibilities of the imagination, and furniture. An intense, comedic, high energy, angsty, and historically inaccurate look at the English Romantic poets. This outlandish play investigates the bounds of language and how we block our own creative potential.
