The Robert Cray Band were formed in 1974.

Much like an modern artists' response to a classical masterpiece, a range of critically-acclaimed contemporary poets will be inspired by some of England's most beloved wordsmiths, before responding with new and celebrated works of their own. Actors and musicians will be bringing these to life. Following the success of last year's Winter's Tales, in which actors read aloud stirring short stories under the glorious candlelight of the Playhouse, this series brings a melting pot of classic and contemporary poetry to the stage in what is bound to be a memorable and evocative evening.
Seminal American performance artist Karen Finley makes a rare UK appearance with an elegiac anthology of spoken-word pieces that confronts the AIDS crisis in 1980s New York. Drawn from performance texts, letters, poetry and fragments compiled by the artist between 1983 and 1994, Written in Sand is a lyrical and highly personal testimony. It recalls a time in which loss, indifference and cruelty came to define the lives of people with AIDS, their friends and families. Interjecting her narrative with improvised wit, Finley is accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Paul Nebenzahl playing compositions written by musicians who died as a result of the disease. Covering themes of neglect to social exclusion, she embodies the period's collective trauma and grief yet somehow leaves audiences feeling ?more exhilarated than defeated' (Villager, USA).
