London Comedy Writers Group

Tuesday 12 February, 7pm-9pm
Old Kings Head, Kings Head Yard,
London Bridge


Fancy taking your loved one to see a never-before-seen play by Shakespeare on the eve of Valentines Day?

No, I kid ye not. The London Comedy Writers, now in its sixth year, meets every three Tuesdays (approx) at the Old Kings Head, Kings Head Yard, London Bridge. It's up the apples and pears, in a small pub off Borough High Street (if using London Bridge tube station, make sure you come out of the Borough High Street East exit).

We begin on the dot of 7pm - the play lasts one hour and will be read by professional actors and actresses. Get there BEFORE 7pm to take advantage of the pub's generous happy hour - the prices go up at 7 so I tend to stock up at 6:55.

This Tuesday night we will be hearing a new play by (Sir) Aaron Shakespeare - real name - one of our members. We then have a 10 minute break to replenish our ale, and then go round the table and give feedback to the playright. We then get merrily pissed.

We normally read film and TV sitcom scripts, but occasionally we venture into playwriting and occasionally sketch writing. Make sure you turn up before 7pm - no need to book, but if you contact me off-list beforehand I can make sure you get the script to print off and bring with you - it will make it easier to give feedback later.

Turn up and get on the list with your own script!

Thank ye all verilly much, ye blaggards.
