With a slight change in the entertainment we usually book, we chose a Poetry Show, performed by two actors from SG Productions who read poetry to our residents for a half an hour or so. It was lovely to listen to well-known poems and one or two unknown. They read beautifully, with great feeling and humour too. One resident, took off her shoes, lay back on the sofa, closed her eyes and looked as if in absolute bliss. One lady said, “absolutely lovely…I had forgotten how nice it is to be read to.”
One gentleman thought it better than the telly! We look forward to hosting them again in July and hopefully outdoors. We strongly recommend SG Production’s Poetry Show for a little bit of quality ‘live theatre’.
