Christopher Hampton explores the passionate and volatile relationship between 19th century French poets Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine.

Rimbaud, a teenage prodigy, turns Verlaine’s world upside down with his rebellious nature. Inspired, Verlaine leaves his humdrum life – living with the parents of his young wife – behind to sample Rimbaud’s freedom. But such an existence cannot go on forever and something, or someone, has to give.

Total Eclipse stars Daniel Evans, who won the 2007 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor In A Musical for his performance in the Menier Chocolate Factory production of Sunday In The Park With George.
