Novel and play readings

News of a couple of events in September, both in the Brighton area. I’ll be reading from Exit Strategies and other work at Shoreham WordFest, on a lively programme with four other local writers, and giving a preview of my new play at Sussex Playwrights’ Club. Both events are open to all so please join us.

Saturday 29 September, 7.30pm
An Evening with Local Authors
Shoreham Centre, Pond Road, Shoreham-by-Sea

Compered by Craig Melvin of the Big Book Group, with readings by local authors Sue Walker, Sally O’Reilly, Pam Weaver, Matthew Turner and MM Lee, followed by Q&A. Refreshments available.

Tickets: £5, available online here or call 07522 957691

For more information on this year’s Shoreham WordFest see the website or pick up one of the brochures which are dotted around Shoreham.

The other date to look out for is Sunday 16 September, when my new 10-minute play The Exchange will be read at Sussex Playwrights’ Club. This is really work-in-progress towards my new full-length play, Closed, so it will be great to test the material in front of an audience for the first time.

The meeting starts at 7pm at the New Venture Theatre, Brighton, and the reading will follow a discussion of plans for the club’s future development. Guests are always welcome at these meetings, paying £2 on the door. And this includes a glass of wine!
