LONDON: Apples and Snakes in Soho

Apples & Snakes in Soho : Jackie Kay; Roger Robinson; Gloria Dawson
Soho Theatre, Wednesday 25 June

Not only is Jackie Kay the author of several poetry collections and the
acclaimed novel Trumpet, she's also something of a national treasure. Taking
her adoptive upbringing and Scottish-Nigerian heritage as jumping-off
points, her work probes the notoriously knotty topics of gender, race and
identity. She was awarded an MBE for services to literature in 2006.
Tonight, especially for you, she presents a choice platter of her finest

Plus contributions from

Nick Drake chronicler of life¹s serio-comic moments, and past master of
the stings-like-a-bee school of poetry.

Roger Robinson finely-tuned storyteller with buckets of charisma and the
lyrical sensibilities of a musician.

Gloria Dawson newcomer who plays fast and loose with poetic form,
invariably finding beauty in the ensuing chaos.

Another Soho night with Apples & Snakes the heart of poetry in the heart
of the city.

When: Wednesday 25 June @ 8pm
Where: Soho Theatre, 21 Dean St, London W1D 3NE
