Wow what a great afternoon spent at the Rich Mix in Shoreditch as part of ‘My 80’s, the Thatcher years ‘ exhibition . Not only were our actors on top form – Tim Fordyce,Daniel Jarvis, Alexis Leighton, Joyce Veheary and Jade Alexander – reading David Riaz Zaman’s ‘Dog Man’s Folly ‘ and the lovey yorkshire lass Lucy Beacon’s ‘Acceptable in the 80’s” both well received by our audience ..Our guest compere /presenter BEN DAVIES did a fantastic job of keeping it flowing and making sure everyone got a mention as well as adding his own flavour AND the lovely SOPHIE BURROWS -singer/songwriter who in true professional style , with a cold , sang and played her heart out – FANTASTIC performance. Thanks to all that came down , and joined in the fun , for those that didn’t , you missed a great ScriptReadEast @ Rich Mix .

ScriptReadEast was followed by a screening of Arti’s brilliant and informative documentary ‘ Don’t Mention the 47 ‘ really well received and a good Q & a followed . Great Sunday – pics to follow ..
