Sat 28 Nov: Lewes All Saints 

Preview tour of a one man show by poet John Agard, developed in partnership with LLL.

Roll Over Atlantic is a satirical revisting of Christopher Columbus and his 'discovery' of The New World. A voyage in verse, performed against an evocative soundscape of Atlantic murmurings, with Agard variously taking on the voices of Columbus, The Atlantic, a native shaman and the Mighty Mosquito. A mischievous one-man show mixing the tides of cabaret, calypso and the absurd.
