"Writing to the Moment" & N10

On Monday 23 May we have a double bill. The first is a talk, and it promises to be one of our best yet. It's going to be given by Steve Waters, and is entitled “Writing to the Moment”. As well as lecturing students on the degree course at Birmingham University, Steve actually writes real, produced plays which have been performed at a variety of theatres including the Crucible in Sheffield, Hampstead, the Donmar Warehouse, and West Yorkshire Playhouse. His latest, Little Platoons, opened at the Bush last year, and got this glowing encomium by none other than Francis Beckett, who wrote last week's play, American Go Home. Small world, eh?
And that's just the start of the evening. After that we get the long-awaited P-P debut by our very own Publicity Secretary Ninaz Khodaiji. It's called N10, and is a sitcom set among the dubious weirdoes who live in that part of North London.

7.45 at the Phoenix.

Hey, that's where I live! Now about the evening: it was extremely well attended and very entertaining. Our speaker was fluent, modest and a little bit provocative. One of our very best; we must have him again. And the pilot episode of N10 by Ninaz Khodaiji had some good lines and great performances. I particularly enjoyed the dog joining in when the Norwegian sexpot in the next room started her singing exercises. Yes, that's N10 all right. And the tribulations of an Indian intellectual provided a good subplot. Next episode please Ninaz.
