Step back to the 1920s as we kick-off Murder She Wrote with our TAF2019 panellists and guests for a thrilling evening of Spoken Word and Local Entertainment, including a poem from TAF2019’s Femme Fatale, Mon Lulan.
SPOKEN WORD PERFORMERS ANNOUNCED!
Thank you to everyone who applied for one of our spoken word performance slots at Noir at the Bar.
We’ve brought together a fascinating mix of performances that include slam poetry, dark memoir, chilling rhyme, slam poetry, an obituary and a short play.
Joining TAF2019’s Femme Fatale Mon Lulan - with her piece Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary - your performers for the evening include:
Alison Alexander – Murder Most Foul: The Huon, 1843
Steve Dillon – Creature, Monster
Jonathon Clarke-Hansen – Huon Hysterical
Naomie Clarke-Port – Poison in the Valley
Judy Howison – Breaking the Cycle?
Peregrine Slam Poetry
Rachel Smith – Feet of Clay
Jo St Leon – Dementia
It will be a spectacular evening!
Chat with a writer, enjoy a drink or cheer for your favourite local act.
Cocktails will be available at the Festival Bar, including Murder She Wrote’s Signature Cocktail: Writers’ Blood.
You can grab scrumptious morsels from our Deadly Diva of Dumplings Sally Ives (dumplings and curries), Peregrine School (rice paper rolls) and Crave (loaded hotdogs, loaded fries, fresh locally-caught fish and chips).
All these late-night indulgences were available to speakeasy goers in 1920s New York!
Grab a costume from ReFind (aka Murder She Wrote’s Ticketing Office) - think flapper dresses, women in three-piece suits, tommy guns and trilby hats - and join us!
