Fear And Loathing in Cavendish Square
Tonight I have been rehearsing for the Liars’ League. I am performing a story for their monthly night this Tuesday – the theme is ‘Fear and Loathing.”
The story I am reading is by Niall Boyce, whose work I have had the pleasure of reading before at a similar event a few years ago.
Liars’ League, if you’re not familiar with it, is a monthly live fiction night, where professional actors read new short stories by writers from around the world. (I lifted that definition from their website, because it’s late, and I really should be sleeping soon…)
It is always a most enjoyable evening, and Niall is an adorable doctor turned writer with a flair for the dark and disturbing. Not in his doctoring, of course. Just his writing. There are other stories being read too, all new and all in the vein of horror/sci-fi/haunty type stuff.
There’s more info here on Facebook – it’s held downstairs at The Phoenix, Cavendish Square, W1G 0PP, near Oxford Circus tube. Not incidentally, The Phoenix on Shaftesbury Avenue, which is where I was going to go until I researched it in order to write this blog. Which is why blogging is a socially useful activity. Because now I will be there and not somewhere else. Good night.
Oh P.S. there’s also going to be a brand new story by Stephen King! He’s famous and brilliant! I probably should have mentioned him earlier.
