Pushkin's Half Hour

Caribbean-British poet John Agard as you've never seen him before. Join him in this entertaining satirical homage to Pushkin's verse novel, Eugene Onegin. A whirlwind spin in which he plays all the parts, not just Pushkin and his alter ego Onegin, but love interest Tatyana and the old nursemaid Filipevna! 

"Agard subverts and invents with a poet's deftness" (Times Educational Supplement)

"... an outstanding luminary of the exploding galaxyof West Indian-British troubadours, hilarious and moving by turns, with sharply satiric intelligence" (Michael Horovitz)

The Devil's Storybook

 Cabaret artist & singer/songwriter Annika Brown takes us on a lyrical journey through hell and back. Be entertained by a wicked sequence of extracts from her 4 star reviewed show, featuring original edgy songs interlinked with snippets of John Agard’s devilish poetry. Annika Brown (guitar & voice) will be accompanied by Tom Evans (accordion).

“Very evocative.” (Phil Jackson, BBC South)

"Very thought provoking ... Annika Brown has hit on something special" (Sascha Cooper)
