Bard of Worcestershire
Although I did not finish in the top three, the comments from friends and strangers alike, helped overcome the disappointment which naturally crept in. Special mention must be made to Sarah James who always delivers. Immaculate might seem a strange word to use about a poet but she literally paints pictures with her words. I am somewhat surprised that she, too, was relegated to the losers bench. However, we are united in defeat and go on to perform at The Marrs Bar on June 20th, Little Venice - Parole Parlate on 23rd, and the Worcester Slam, Drummonds on 26th.
The whole lead up to this event has made me knuckle down to more writing and I am delighted to say that I shall be joining ex Birmingham Poet Laureate, Charlie Jordan, Lorna Mehan and Laura Biding in a four diva show as part of the Birmingham Arts Fest later this year.
If you are in Worcester on June 22nd, why don't you call in to the Arts Cafe and catch a couple of short plays? A bawdy romp and a classic case of till rage! Hope to see you there but if Birmingham is nearer to you, I shall be at the Birmingham Library Theatre on Monday, June 20th and the Irish Nite at The Old Crown, Digbeth on June 29th.
