Summary

Will people accept them? As a timorous wench from a centaur (or a centurion), Already they flee, howling in terror. Will they be touched with the verisimilitudes? Their virgin stupidity is untemptable. I beg you, my friendly critics, Do not set about to procure me an audience. I mate with my free kind upon the crags; the hidden recesses Have heard the echo of my heels, in the cool light, in the darkness.
Available since: 10/20/2017.

    The Trojan War is over and Odysseus, the cunning King of Ithaca, sets out for home, his wife Penelope and his son Telemachus. It proves a long, ten-year journey, fraught with dangers, from Polyphemus, the one-eyed Cyclops, and the seductive Sirens, to the love of Calypso on her all-too-comfortable isle. When he arrives in Ithaca, he has to contend with a group of suitors who have been pressing his wife to forget about her husband, admit she is a widow, and marry one of them. Anton Lesser, one of Britain’s finest audiobook stars, brings this great classic to life in the new and imaginative translation by Ian Johnston.

    This is a short poetic story based on characters from the Magicians series. 
    I am beyond life, 
    I am beyond strife, 
    I am long beyond my last breath, 
    I'm among the angelic host, 
    some call me a ghost, 
    I awoke one day dead or as good as dead, 
    I knew not how it was even possible me being a ghost 
    as I was the king of the grim reapers, so I cannot die in a normal way as this to become a ghost.

    How many plays start in a dentist’s chair and climax with a wild masquerade party? Shaw’s hilarious comedy of errors involves mistaken identity, tangled courtship, and wise advice from “the perfect waiter.” With a nod to Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, Shaw’s You Never Can Tell is a lightning-paced satire of romance and Edwardian society.

    As our weekly poem of 30-July-2006, “Jazz Fantasia” was a special challenge because it isn’t just about jazz, it IS jazz. The rhythm is central, but not so clearly defined, so we had to play around and improvise.  Every reading is unique!  (Summary by LauraFox)

    Out of Your Knowledge explores our changing attitudes towards the landscape as the playwright retraces the journey of John Clare, the 19th-century English poet who escaped his lunatic asylum in Essex and walked for over 100 miles to reach his home village.
    This play is taken from Steve Waters: Shorts, five short plays from acclaimed playwright Steve Waters, all of them deeply personal accounts of his attempts to make sense of twenty-first-century Britain and an ever-changing world.
