As the title suggests, the show plumbed the depth and explored the breadth of our relationships with place, time, death and one-another by means of poetry, prose, opera, musical and popular song. The works of TS Eliot, Roy Orbison, Kurt Weil, Cole Porter, Thomas Hardy, John Betjeman and others provided enormous variety and showcased the versatility of the performers.

Our enjoyment was further enhanced by the provision of delicious apéros and our satisfaction made all the warmer by the news that we had raised another 700 euros for the work of CSFPG.
