LONDON: Utter! Heartbreak Valentine's / Plath Day Special

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009, 7:30pm - 10:30pm, £5/£3 before 7.30pm.
Green Note Club,
106 Camden Parkway

Transport: Camden Town tube, Camden road / Euston overland

All the featured spoken word artistes will be reading both works of their own on heartbreak and delivering some of the work of our Sylvia. They include:
Julia Bird: Previous ajar mic contest winner with a wonderful book, Hannah and the Monk, out with Salt. Her life is a cage, but on stage she's free.
James Kettle: He's had shows on BBC Radios 4 and 7, regularly headlines massive comedy clubs and deputy edits The Fix magazine. His subjects are suburban goth librarians and Tony Slattery, and you can't get any more heartbreak than that really, can you?
Annie Brechin: Published in The Wolf, The Delinquent, Rising and basically everywhere, being lovelorn has never seemed so glamorous. Why she doesn't have a book out yet we don't know.
Vinnie Gibbons: Winner of November's ajar mic contest, a bastard attack poet penning
material about power struggles in the animal kingdom and the plight of dubstep hedgehogs.
The Utter! Writing Group themselves with heartbroken writings produced at the group...
A dramatic JG Ballard-esque reenactment of the death of Sylvia Plath starring Richard Tyrone-Jones as Ted Hughes and Robert Yates as Elizabeth Taylor! With puppets.

The legendary AJAR MIC CONTEST: Rob Autton, Rowyda Amin, Amy Blakemore, and John Stiles reading from his novel Taking the Stairs. YOU vote to decide who wins a full paid slot at Utter! Bringing all your mates along to vote for you is positively welcomed, by the way.
