The Moon Under Water

Andrew James Brown: The Moon Under Water

George Orwell liked pubs. Andrew James Brown LOVES pubs. All pubs! Taking Orwell’s 1946 essay ‘The Moon Under Water’ as a starting point, Andrew James Brown looks at the joy of pubs, their essence and their greatness, and, most importantly the people in them. Why not join him on his colourful journey through pubs great and small, from chain pub to gastro, travelling through city gin-palaces and country inns across parquet flooring and sticky carpet alike. This humorous look at pubs and people takes in history, philosophy, musings, poems and tales of booze, horse brasses and Morris dancing, all washed down with a warm lager or two.
Do you like pubs? If so, you'll like this. Hopefully.

I, AmDram

Hannah Maxwell: I, AmDram

"My voice cracked on the high note. I saw my Nan wince. The blood rushed to my cheeks - and a century's lineage lay shattered on the floor."
In this affectionate tribute Hannah Maxwell makes a prodigal’s return to the musty vibrancy of amateur dramatics – her family’s consuming passion for 89 years and four generations. Weaving storytelling, stand-up, live art and a manageable amount of musical theatre references, I, AmDram traces the distance between queer, quirky London and the rehearsal halls of Home Counties suburbia; minding the gap between the identities we assert and the worlds we leave.

Poet Laureate

Luke Wright: Poet Laureate

Following a sell-out run in Edinburgh, Luke Wright hits the road with his new show, commissioned by Inn Crowd, that critics are calling his best yet. With a new Poet Laureate due to be announced in 2019 Wrighty’s chucking his hat in the ring. He’s on a mission to write poems to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet ever really represent an entire nation? Big-hearted and quick witted, Wright’s poems have been lauded by everyone from Patti Smith to The Libertines. A Fringe First and Stage Award winner, Wright is truly a wordsmith and raconteur at the top of his game. In 2019 he celebrates the twentieth anniversary of his first gig. So maybe he can pull it off?
