One From The Vaults
A big thank you to Jan, Laurence, Maureen and the rest of the crew at the London Metropolitan Archive last night for a thoroughly fun Gothic Halloween Night. As a tip to future event organisers thinking of running readings nights, do what the LMA did – find your reader a comfy chair. It makes a huge difference when you’re onstage for an hour.
Of course, I shot myself in the foot a little in my choice of the opening story – a tale riddled with insane tongue-twisters and phrases, designed to be read on the page. In fact, I had performed it once before but I think we were all a bit drunk and it was fine!
The other story, ‘Lantern Jack’, appears in the Independent on Sunday this Sunday.
