Josephine Hart poetry week, Downton Abbey

Dan participated in two readings at the Josephine Hart poetry week at the Donmar Warehouse this week. 

On Monday, he read Philip Larkin with Charles Dance. From "Charles Dance's Diary" in the Evening Standard:

I took part in the first night of Josephine Hart's week of poetry at the Donmar Warehouse... this time I read Philip Larkin with Dan Stevens.

A tweet from Catrin Griffiths (@lawyercatrin) about the reading:

Wow. #Larkin evening at the #Donmar wonderful. Talk about pleasure of the text. Could listen to @thatdanstevens read poetry for hours.

The next evening, he read "Paradise Lost" by John Milton with Emilia Fox. Tweets: 

@thatdanstevens and Emilia Fox made an electrifying Adam and Eve in tonight's reading of Paradise Lost at the Donmar... (Neil Parkinson/@starcarbon)

Reading of Milton's Paradise Lost at the Donmar yesterday was fantastic. Get tickets if you can for the other events. (Peter Ainsworth/@peterainsworth
