Acrostic and Haiku for Midsummer

Video

Alison Absolute sent us lots of Haiku… Almost the Complete Works of Shakespeare: we couldn’t use them all, these are just some – a page got dropped somewhere so there are fewer than we intended – read by Katy Darby, Carrie Cohen & Saul Reichlin

Saul Reichlin reads Pat Tompkins‘ acrostic, What’s in a Name? Listen carefully, in true Elizabethan cryptic style, there’s a message buried in the first letters of each line

there are lots more videos to come, keep an eye out!

Midsummer: Sonnet and Neighbour complaint Videos

Video

Our revels may be ended but we still have memories to look back upon.

We got a lot of poems in response to our Midsummer Shakespeare400 call out, here are just 2 of them!

Kim Russell sent us her Response to Sonnet 12 (read by Carrie Cohen), so we thought you should hear the actual Sonnet 12 (read by Saul Reichlin) before the response: it seemed only fair!

Sarah Lawson imagined what it was like to live Next Door to the Capulets. This poem is introduced with a little bit of Romeo & Juliet from Katy Darby & Cliff Chapman

There’s lots more to come, but my laptop is almost full, despite off loading vast quantities of files, so editing the videos is tiresome, and for some reason uploading is taking an age too. So patience will be required!

Longest night – the complete videos

It’s twelfth night, and the official end of the festive season, so as you pack up your Christmas baubles, here’s something to cheer you up: your opportunity to experience the entire evening of Longest Night, in the same order as the audience, but without me waffling on in between, and without the mulled cider, unless you happen to have some to hand of course.

A Month of Sundays by Alison Moore Solstice Shorts Festival Video

Video

Saul Reichlin reads A Month of Sundays by Alison Moore (one of the Judges of our short story competition)  at West Greenwich Library.

Late for the funeral of his oldest friend, Ralph makes some unexpected new friends…

Our BSL Interpreters had an incredibly long day and didn’t get much time to rehearse, so treat the signing as a (very good)  indication of the story rather than a perfect rendition.
