Richard Eyre directs Pip Carter, Pandora Colin, Ifan Huw Dafydd, Shaun Dooley, Hattie Morahan and Dan Poole.
Deep in the Hampshire countryside Edward Thomas (Carter) scrapes a living; disaffected husband, exhausted father and tormented writer. Then in 1913 he meets American poet Robert Frost (Dooley) and everything changes. As their friendship blossoms Edward writes, emerging from his cocoon of self-doubt into one of the most influential poets of the 20th century. On the verge of success he makes the drastic decision to enlist, confounding his friends and family. The Dark Earth and the Light Sky delves into the life of this enigmatic and complex character in an era of change and destruction.
