Hugo Glendinning we brop

Ever wanted to get away from it all?

Kieran is 27, and stuck in a dead-end sea-side town. He wants to see the world, one exotic cocktail at a time. But tonight there’s a UK garage revival on at Rileys, and Sambuca’s half price.

Paul is 50 and on the road again, a British Lebowski in an old skool campervan. Trusting in tai chi and the power of sevens, he’s on a quest to reconcile then and now.

Join this mismatched couple on their road-trip through austerity Britain, searching for the perfect holiday moment. Sometimes the past is the only thing you can’t leave behind.


This Is How We Die

by Christopher Brett Bailey

Christopher Brett Bailey_THIS IS HOW WE DIE_2_web crop

A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling. Tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence. From the desk of Christopher Brett Bailey comes a spiraling odyssey of pitch-black humour and nightmarish prose.

[Simon Mole is ] an engaging presence...incredibly adept at both the comedic and dramatic elements. Awesome.
Huffington Post on Indiana Jones and the Extra Chair
'An absurd road movie of the soul cut with a razor wit and bubbling paranoia'
The Guardian on This Is How We Die
Simon’s poetry is packed with observant details and laid back, snappy verse...a veritable smorgasbord of poetical delights.
