Merci Ditch Present….Tales From The Reading Room

23/04/2022 @ 14:00 - 15:00

Merci Ditch Present….Tales From The Reading Room.

Join us on Saturday 23rd April from 2.00pm, when new company Merci Ditch launch themselves on the collective unconscious with some short stories in the afternoon.

Faithful To The Original: He wrote a novelette upon her naked body, in one draft without revision, but how will they publish.

Letters To Lucy: A mother regularly spills her good and aching heart on to paper, to coax a lost daughter home; home to a banality she escaped in desperation.

Bibliophelia: A woman finds her heart in books – and buries it there. But human desire is not easily stifled, and now the books whisper of a life beyond the printed page.

Elton And I: Two inept explorers rove the wide world and plunder a lifetime’s experience of baffling otherness to prove, with slide photographs, that one ought never to butter toast with a fork.

A fundraiser for Morrab Library on The Bard’s birthday.

About Merci Ditch: 

Kate and Stephen first performed together in Seven Stones initial production: Alan Ayckbourn’s Woman in Mind at the Minack Theatre. They were then in The Wireless Ensemble’s final production of a play written for radio, and then the newly formed Blabbermouth Theatre Company. Blabbermouth took its first show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and toured subsequent self-created shows locally. Merci Ditch is another new venture to promote their own writing to a local audience.

We will allocate tickets by a ballot system. Please register your interest and the number of tickets required by Thursday 7th April by email or telephone. We will then draw out names and let you know if you have been successful.

£5 Suggested donation. Refreshments will be served.
