live literature / directing
by John Agard

Short preview tour of a new work by Caribbean-British poet, John Agard. A whimsical whirlwind homage to mixed race Russian poet, Pushkin, in which John Agard transforms Pushkin's famous verse novel, Eugene Onegin, into a contemporary parlour production in which he plays all the parts. Not just Pushkin and his alter-ego Onegin, but love interest Tatyana and the old nursemaid Filipevna! With live incidental music by Sophia Poznansky (accordion) & cabaret chanteuse Pam Hewitt.

live literature / directing
by Gus Watcham

Mark C. Hewitt is working with writer Gus Watcham on the development and tour of a new live literature production. REDDER revisits - for an adult audience - the story of Little Red Riding Hood, but here, Red Riding Hood is 66 and not a little dysfunctional. The collaborative team also includes artists Abigail Norris and Isobel Smith. With performances to follow next year in Brighton, St Leonards, Margate, Bristol and elsewhere.
