O love, as summer goes,
I must be gone, steal forth with silent drums,
That you may hail anew the bird and rose
When I come back to you, as summer comes.
From the creators of I Shall Forget You Presently (winner – Audience Choice Award, FRIGID Festival 2014) comes Summer to Your Heart, an immersive experience based on the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay.
Wander across the green lawn of Nolan Park to the yellow house marked 8B. Songs on the porch lead into rooms full of poetry and scenes from the life of a woman who captured love, defined feminism and shaped the 20th century.
