A unique night of love, letters, poems and songs, based on dylan thomas’ letters to pearl kazin

This event takes place at Crazy Coqs at Brasserie Zédel, 20 Sherwood Street, W1F 7ED

‘And I’ll be there to meet it, small, red, fat, and in love….’

In an exciting collaboration to mark the centenary of the birth of Dylan Thomas, a collection of recently published love letters written from Dylan to American literary critic Pearl Kazin, are performed.

Only half of their conversation exists, so the other half is created in this unique night of love, letters, poems and songs, at the Crazy Coqs at Brasserie Zédel.

Directed by Steve Marmion, Artistic Director of Soho Theatre, I Kiss Your Heart features American cabaret star Amelia Zirin-Brown (Lady Rizo) as Pearl, and Welsh, RSC stalwart Tim Treloar as Dylan, joined by a jazz trio. The music is composed in a collaboration between Yair Evnine and Greg Harradine (Soho Theatre’s composer in Residence).

In 1950 Dylan embarked on an intense year-long love affair with Pearl. Their love was documented in a collection of passionate letters sent to Pearl in America from around the world.

Thomas’ letters to Kazin are published by Parthian with the title A Pearl of Great Price edited and introduced by Jeff Towns.

I Kiss Your Heart is part of the Dylan Thomas 100, and is generously supported by the Welsh Government.
