I will be reading my poem, “The Dream Life of Teresa Harris”, from the anthology Possessions: The Eldon House Poems. The poem can be heard in my CD, Night Vision (Pendas Productions). It’s performed with singer/songwriter Brenda McMorrow and me on this videopoem by Dennis Siren: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO4_aJpvqjE&list=UUExB7YpDG2lBqqRtH06GIKg&index=67, filmed at The Aeolian. This poem portrays the dream life of 19th century Londoner, explorer and world traveller, Teresa Harris. She was the youngest daughter of Eldon House’s Harris family. The poem developed into the play, The Dream Life of Teresa Harris, presented at Eldon House in September, 2013.

Scenes from the play to get you in the mood:
