Synopsis
 
From Epping Forest to the A14, from asylum to wild-wood, Clare's Walk by playwright Steve Waters, takes for its inspiration the nightmarish journey in 1841 by poet John Clare (1793-1864) from the lunatic asylum where he was incarcerated in Epping Forest to his home in Northborough in North Cambridgeshire, along the route of the A1.

Waters and actor Patrick Morris re-walked the route in June 2005, looking at how the landscape has changed since Clare's day, and the development issues the entire region faces. Clare's Walk examines the themes in Clare's verse in a modern context: the connection between self and environment, between ownership and dispossession.

Activists and twitchers, road-builders and utopians people the secret landscape that lies beneath the tarmac of the A1 corridor.
