What do you think would happen if you knocked on a stranger’s door and offered to write them a poem?

 

Two years ago Rowan McCabe became the world's first Door-to-Door Poet. Through a funny and thought-provoking mix of spoken word and theatre, find out about the people he met on his journey around the North East of England; from a council estate in Stockton, to a mosque in Newcastle; from his appearance on BBC Breakfast, to the most expensive properties in the region.

 

About community and loneliness, at the heart of it all lies a simple, yet vital question: Can we trust strangers?
