... new writing for the Dickens Festival 2011

Packed audiences for our new writing Dickens inspired show, LOW EXPECTATIONS, for the Dickens Festival 2011.



Low Expectations consisted of extracts from ‘I put the case – the collected letters of John Jaggers QC’, telling the story of Jaggers’ career after the book, by Barry Fentiman, ‘Waiting for Charlie’ a Beckett-esque musing on what might really have happened to the soldiers on the marshes, by Roy Smith, ‘Social critique 2011′ by Sarah March D’angelo, on what might have happened if Sarah Pockett had been born now, and ‘Books alive!’ an interdimensional book review show which interviews Molly, Jaggers’ mysterious maid, written by Sam Hall.


We had brilliant audiences over the weekend, with had an average of 40 people per show on Friday and Sunday and about 20 per show on Saturday.
