“Time present and time past / Are both perhaps present in time future, / And time future contained in time past.” Yes, you read T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets in college, and no doubt remember its enigmas. But do you remember its soul? Lines like “The only wisdom we can hope to acquire / Is the wisdom of humility: humility is endless.” The actor and director Ralph Fiennes, who most recently wowed everyone with his sublime performance in The Dig, heads into the deeps of Eliot, performing his majestic poem at the Oxford Playhouse. The run is short, so book now. —L.J.
