Summary

Loneliness is that fine line between the emptiness that claims us and the warmth of self-love that embraces our soul. Grey is the color we use to describe sadness, helplessness, fear but, with only a breath of hope, it fills our life with color. Pain is that old friend with whom you have a couple of drinks and sooner or later, it ends up teaching you how to carry on despite the blows. Uncertainty is that heart with red-hot wounds that makes us wonder how, when, why…
"The Boy with the Sad Eyes" is full of lines that question, that make us think, that cry out to be read, just as every scar we bear asks to be healed. It is a book that tells us about living, not just surviving, because when we survive there is still a part of us that wants to die. Within its pages we find an invitation to resurface from that dry land, to take root, believe and trust again and, above all, to love once more.
If you ever felt like you were sinking in the sea of desolation, these lines will touch even the deepest fibers of your soul.

    The most enduring and popular theme of poems and poets is that of love.   
     
    Can anyone think of a poet who has not in inky lines described their pursuit of love, their hopes for love, their loss of love, their unrequited love, their love of love ….. No. 
     
    The language of poetry is mysterious but yearns to capture the essence and all aspects of its subject.  
     
    In ‘Love’ it finds a difficult mistress.  Individual poems can capture individual moments but has any one poem found within its lexicon the formula for the attainment of love?  Again, the answer is ‘No’. 
     
    Love changes, its rhythms pause and pulse on the tiniest of things and the biggest of thrills.  Within its shades all other feelings, all other emotions, gently reside, waiting for their moment. 
     
    In these fifty poems the many, many shades of love reveal themselves…..

    An unflinching play from exciting new writer and performer, Izzy Tennyson.
    Grotty is a dark and savage exploration of the London lesbian scene. A couple of little sad old basements that drip with sweat and piss, with second-hand noise pulsating from some gay-boy night upstairs. The women sit there in their uniformed black… and they are looking at you. They are not nice girls. But Grotty is not a nice story.
    The piece was premiered by Damsel Productions at The Bunker, London, in May 2018.

    A new volume of poetry from the New York Times bestselling and esteemed author of The Liar’s Club and Lit. 
    Long before she earned accolades for her genre-defining memoirs, Mary Karr was winning poetry prizes. Now the beloved author returns with a collection of bracing poems as visceral and deeply felt and hilarious as her memoirs. In Tropic of Squalor, Karr dares to address the numinous—that mystery some of us hope towards in secret, or maybe dare to pray to. The ""squalor"" of meaninglessness that every thoughtful person wrestles with sits at the core of human suffering, and Karr renders it with power—illness, death, love’s agonized disappointments. Her brazen verse calls us out of our psychic swamplands and into that hard-won awareness of the divine hiding in the small moments that make us human. In a single poem she can generate tears, horror, empathy, laughter, and peace. She never preaches. But whether you’re an adamant atheist, a pilgrim, or skeptically curious, these poems will urge you to find an inner light in the most baffling hours of darkness.

    A poignant drama about attitudes to teenage pregnancy in 60s Britain.
    Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Forcibly sent to a Mother and Baby Home in the north of England by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary - along with the other girls in the home - has to cope with both the shame and the dawning realisation that she will have to give the baby up for adoption whether she likes it or not. Despite this - and an overbearing matron - the girls' youthful effervescence keeps breaking through as they sing along to the girl-group songs of the period.
    Be My Baby was first performed at the Pleasance Theatre, London, in November 1998.This edition includes new scenes added for several successful revivals of the play.
