What do you think would happen if you knocked on a stranger's door and offered to write them a poem?

Two years ago Rowan McCabe became the world's first Door-to-Door Poet. Through a funny and thought-provoking mix of spoken word and theatre, find out about the people he met on his journey around the North East of England; from the most expensive houses in the region, to a mosque in Newcastle; from a council estate in Stockton, to his appearance on BBC Breakfast.

About community and loneliness, at the heart of it all lies a simple, yet vital question: Can we trust strangers?

Written and performed by Rowan McCabe

Directed by Peader Kirk

Supported by Northern Stage, ARC Stockton, Sunderland Culture, Cultural Spring, New Writing North, Apples and Snakes and Arts Council England.
