APPLES & SNAKES IN SOHO Featuring Brian Patten

Wednesday 29 October
8pm, £8 / £6
Soho Theatre
21 Dean St, London W1D 3NE

Poetry that speaks to all five senses.

Performance poetry owes an awful lot to Brian Patten: as one of theLiverpool Poets, he captured the zeitgeist of the 1960s and turned poetry into something quirky, invigorating and slightly dangerous. But rather than resting on former glories, he's tackled the subsequent decades head-on, tirelessly producing new material and establishing himself as one of the nation's foremost writers, both on the stage and between the book-covers. Tonight the great craftsman presents a selection of his masterworks.

Also on the bill will be Karen McCarthy , who carries that same flame of quirkiness in her poetry, plays and inspirational blogging. Don't miss your chance to hear the woman who "fizzes with intelligence, energy and linguistic invention" (New Statesman). Plus, kicking off the evening, there's PoetiCat , a forthright new spoken-word sensation, who has already garnered a five-star review at the Edinburgh Fringe and continues to wow allcomers. Jacob Sam-La Rose, a man with a well-chosen word for every occasion, will be your master of ceremonies.
