“What the Floyd did, what Syd did, somehow at those few gigs they did in London is that they defined the whole of that moment in the ‘60s.”
– Pete Townshend (The Who)
“Syd Barrett’s music, both with Pink Floyd and as a solo artist, changed everything in pop culture.” – Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth)
“Riveting, poignant, tender, moving and tragic but ultimately inspiring.”
– John Squire (The Stone Roses)
Dramatised by Roger James Elsgood from Haydn Middleton’s novel of the same name. The story features an imagined meeting that takes place between Syd Barrett and the English author of A Room with a View and A Passage to India, E M Forster, woven into a beautiful tale. The setting for this play is a place that both of these characters called home, Cambridge. Sound design and post-production by Giovanni Sipiano, directed by Willi Richards and produced by Roger James Elsgood.
