Are You Sitting Comfortably?

7.30pm. £8


An evening of tales of stick-em-ups and robber barons, stand and deliver and corporate greed, the perfect crime, the bungled heist, the double crossing, the faked death, the starting-a -new -life -in-Rio, the Wall Street hustlers, the Mexican stand off, back stabbing, and honour amongst thieves. They'll be a roll call of the good the bad and the ugly, including Al Capone, Fred Goodwin, Robin Hood, Bonnie and Clyde, Ronnie Biggs, Ma Baker, Cat Baloo and Mr Orange.

Tonight we'll be as thick as thieves in the prohibition themed bar, on the run, holed up, gone to ground, listening to short stories by new writers and read by the team at White Rabbit. Accompanied by smokin' visuals and rambuctious music, free chip butties and literary crime quiz with prizes so great they should be illegal. Teapot cocktails available from the bar.

The writers for CRIME are:
Jacqueline Downs
David Payne
Andrew Kearsey
Chris Mason
Victoria Manifold
Andrew McGuinness
Tom Glover
Vera Chok
Aisha Zia

After the show there will be a podcast special featuring Sophia Sheridan, Christopher Owen and K Krombie.
