The Witch in the Woods & Stand Up for Yourself

Monday 27th April brings us a double bill of one act stage plays by P-P newcomer Lexi Wolfe. First up is The Witch in the Woods:

700 A.D.  Somewhere in the British Isles is a solitary wise woman, Maya, forced from her local village where she and her family were once celebrated sages and healers.  Now, she is alone and friendless, outcast by the steady progression and growing popularity the new and foreign Christianity.  With wolves prowling near her door and no peace to be found in her new role, Maya’s growing rage at the unfair betrayal of her folk rises to boiling point one cold, winter’s night…

Then comes Stand Up for Yourself:

 Over-enthusiastic Lila meets the retiring Lucas in the corner of a party one night.  But there is a little more to each of them than the other perceives at first glances.  With Lucas's claws long-fashioned and Lila's just as quick to be drawn, both need to stand up for themselves, if possible...

7.30 at the North London Tavern.

Nothing To Fear

It's been five years since I had something read at P-P. Now I'm back. I didn't retire, I just had a bit of a lie-down. It's a forty-five minute radio play called Nothing To Fear.

"Why does a naked woman rush out of her house and beg a complete stranger come into her bathroom? What does her husband think about it?"

Come along on April 20th to the North London Tavern at 7.30 and all will be revealed.
