    One night in January 2010 and an earthquake in Haiti leaves around a hundred thousand people dead and almost two million homeless. Meanwhile, somewhere in a leafy North London suburb, a group of six individuals convene over avocado and prawns, followed by a monkfish stew. They struggle with worries over their mortgages, their mobile phone tariffs, their Facebook friends, their careers, their love lives, their diets, their alcohol intake, their holiday plans and whether or not any of them will be able to make any lasting impression on history.‘Torben Betts is one of the most exciting theatre writing talents I have come across in many a year’ - Alan Ayckbourn ‘Betts has a profound and highly original theatrical voice’ - Daily Telegraph ‘Just about the most original and extraordinary writer of drama we have...a boldly visionary poet... a political Beckett... a flamingly original writer we ignore at our peril.' - Liz Lochhead,National Poet Of Scotland ‘What starts out as a mildly amusing comedy of social dysfunctionality turns into something altogether darker and less comfortable’ – The Stage‘A fantastic new play… accurate and witty writing… This stunning and moving play presented the drama and tragedy of everyday middle class life in a simple but believable style… an absolute triumph’ 5 stars – The Public Reviews

    One-night stands are awkward. One-night stands with animals are more awkward. And when you’re as desperate to please as Bobby, things get awkward as f*ck. He’s just a guy with too much love to give, and a burning desire to give it to consensual adult mammals.

    A striking collection of short poems from acclaimed writer May SartonAfter decades of writing flowing lyric verse, May Sarton’s style turned to short bursts of poetry. Likening poetry to gardening, she writes, “Muse, pour strength into my pruning wrist / That I may cut the way toward open space.” These condensed poems are rife with exuberant impressions of nature and of love. Included are two of Sarton’s most acclaimed poems, “Old Lovers at the Ballet” and “Of the Muse.”

    Don’t Let It End Like This Tell Them I Said Something — Paul Vermeersch’s fifth collection of poetry — is, as its title suggests, a lyrical meditation on written language and the end of civilization. It combines centos, glosas, erasures, text collage, and other forms to imagine a post-apocalyptic literature built, or rebuilt, from the rubble of the texts that came before.
