Tea House Theatre
139 Vauxhall Walk
SE11 5HL (round the corner from Vauxhall tube on Victoria line)

A new edition of Paper Tiger Poetry at the Tea House Theatre...

Hosted by Alain English with a great headline feature act: Paul Lyalls, promoting his book Catching the Cascade, currently on its second reprint – fantastic poet, inventive and ironic.

Star of BBC2’s/CBBC’s Big Slam Poetry House, Paul wrote and starred in the sell-out Edinburgh family show Are we nearly there yet? His poetry is funny and moving and his poetry workshops produce extraordinary poems from children of all ages. His new full collection 'Catching the cascade' (Flipped eye) is available from all bookshops and Amazon & has been shortlisted for the 2012 People's Book Prize. Paul has worked and performed with Michael Rosen, George Best, Jean Binta Breeze, Will Self, John Hegley, Benjamin Zepphaniah and Andrea Leavy to name but a few. Paul has also been selected as as one of the London 2012 Shake the Dust poets.

Support from Will Hames and Kevin Reinhardt plus open-mic (sign up from 7pm).
