A Season In Hell

CORE Theatre Ensemble’s dramatization of A Season in Hell, Arthur Rimbaud’s hallucinatory memoir. Rimbaud was a wild, drug-taking teenager who created all his masterpieces before the age of 20. His poetry was bold and brought about new forms. His work has inspired such artists as Oscar Wilde, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison and the Doors, and Patti Smith, just to name a few. Victor Hugo described Rimbaud as “an infant Shakespeare.” This production was originally staged in Norfolk before traveling to Les FIT in Quebec in April 2011.
