Polly Samson

A Theatre for Dreamers

Erica is eighteen and ready for freedom. It’s the summer of 1960 when she lands on the sun-baked Greek island of Hydra where she is swept up in a circle of bohemian poets, painters, musicians, writers and artists, living tangled lives. Life on their island paradise is heady, dream-like, a string of seemingly endless summer days. But nothing can last forever.

“Delicious.” — Nigella Lawson.

“Clever and beguiling.” — The Guardian.

“Sublime and immersive.” — Jojo Moyes.

“A surefire summer hit… At once a blissful piece of escapism and a powerful meditation on art and sexuality.


“Heady armchair escapism… An impressionistic, intoxicating rush of sensory experience.” — Sunday Times

“If summer was suddenly like a novel, it would be like this one. Immaculate.” — Andrew O’Hagan.
