A unique listening experience for one in the bedroom where the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins lived in Newman House Dublin in the 1880’s. Directed by Dylan Tighe and composed by Seán Mac Erlaine No Worst There is None is a sonic journey into the psyche of Hopkins as he approaches death – fusing poetry, an original choral score, electronic sound design and found texts.

Presented by The Stomach Box in association with RTÉ Radio Drama and Poetry Ireland, with the kind permission of UCD Newman House. (Duration 30 Minutes for each person)
