A Bristol Old Vic production

Join us in late September as our Studio takes on the feel of a cabaret club, for an exciting evening of work by the influential writer Alfred Fagon.

The evening will span Alfred Fagon's published work and rarities - with vibrant poetry and song, and his fascinating range of dramatic characters brought to life through script-in-hand extracts from his plays (some of which are set in Bristol).

Doors open at 7:30pm, the performance begins at 8pm and the club goes on until 10pm for music, conversation, and dance.

So come early, and stay late!

PLUS: There will also be a rehearsed full reading of Alfred Fagon's Bristol play 11 Josephine House at 4pm on Sat 28 Sep. This reading is free of charge.

Alfred Fagon lived in Clarendon Jamaica, Nottingham, Bristol and London. He was a boxing champion, a welder, an actor, poet, and playwright. After his untimely death in 1986 a statue was erected in St Paul's, Bristol, and the Alfred Fagon Award created for writers.
