Right now I’m recruiting for
Jan 29th 2018 – FRANKENSTEIN
Feb 27th 2018 – LORD OF THE RINGS
There is a Doodle HERE where you can register your interest in doing a 9-minute talk/performance/set at the Frankenstein show, including letting me know the angle you would like to take on this masterpiece. Anything from “The construction of the concept of the modern scientists in Frankenstein” to “proof that Frankenstein’s Monster survives and is Data in Star Trek TNG” would excite me.
The Doodle for LotR is HERE
The shows are at Waterstones Tottenham Court Road and you get paid in free booze and half-price books.
I’m hoping to podcast these gigs if you’re willing to have your work shared in that way.
