Shortly before his death, the great Romantic poet Lord Byron wrote an erotic memoir detailing his multitudinous sexual conquests. He left instructions that it was to be published upon his death. His publisher in London, however, found the manuscript too prurient for his tastes and those of the times. After consulting several of the poet’s detractors in literary London at the time, the only copy of Byron’s sexual memoir was burned. Lord Byron’s Coda finds the spirit of one of literature’s most enduring lights railing against his perfidious publisher, an unresponsive Deity, and eternity alone. The monologue provides challenges to actors, producers and designers alike. Graced with the subtitle A Monologue on Censorship and Sensuality for a Young Thespian, this intriguing and incisive rant reflects on one of literature’s most enduring figures. Poetic, raunchy, without boundaries – like the great poet himself – Lord Byron’s Coda is the consummate solo performance piece.
