“You have loved me, Fair, three lives — or days:
Twill pass with the passing of my face.
But where I go, your face goes too,
To watch lest I play false to you”.
Field of Poppies: A poem by Francis Thompson

The Deccan Herald Theatre festival features the World Premier of Walter Wykes, “Field of Poppies”. The play revolves around a man called Edward. A terrible and devastating incident has marred Edwards’ memory and he refuses to remember his beloved wife. Her memories lie dormant inside of him, until another woman comes into his life to help him remember. Edward battles the demons of his past and the persistent questioning of the psychiatrist Anne. He prefers to inhabit the walls of an asylum rather than face the realities. In a world terribly drawn into chaos, hate, rage and anger, “Field of Poppies” brings love, hope, order and faith.
