Spencer Jones

This work in progress show is the very start of an idea I have about doing a kind of play. But with routines within it.  So there will be props and music.

Don’t worry. I’m 88% sure I haven’t disappeared up my own arse. There will be a story. All set in a bedsit. A story about a man (me) playing a man (Herbert) who is worried about an audition (Job interviews for dickheads). So that’s the big idea. I’ve no idea how it will pan out. So make sure there’s nothing else on at the same time you fancy seeing.

Lots of love Spencer xxx

Not limited by form, these personal reflections cover poetry, theatre, nonfiction and novels. We wanted to take stock in this 70th anniversary year of the arrival of the HMS…

Arinzé Kene’s Misty Preface: “What’s a black play?”

Arinzé Kene, writer and performer of Misty, describes the inspiration for his play in the Preface to the playtext published by Nick Hern Books. It’s available from our online book shop.
