Dead Poets Live bring you a unique evening of poetry as actors and performers including Toby Jones, Sheila Atim and Robert Sheehan read... Bob Dylan.

Dead Poets Live has established a reputation for unique evenings of poetry, and Bob Dylan: The Words of the Songs will be no exception. Using Dylan's own prose, public statements and interviews and others' critical perspectives to knit the evening together, the show will present Dylan's lyrics (and poetry) without the backing of music, exposing fresh aspects and rhythms, and giving us a chance to hear the songs from a different point of view.

Cast includes Toby Jones (Detectorists, The Secret Agent), Sheila Atim (The Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy, Girl from the North Country) and Robert Sheehan (Misfits, Mortal Engines).

Since then, features include Ghostwood, Summer of the Flying Saucer, Season of the Witch, Cherrybomb, Killing Bono, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, The Road Within, Anita B, The Messenger, Moonwalkers, Jet Trash, Geostorm, Bad Samaritan, Three Summers, Mute and the upcoming Mortal Engines.
