October Playreading - 'The Writing Game' by David lodge

Firstly I must issue an apology. This meetup should have been advertised much earlier, but got lost in the spin cycle along with Oscar and Felix (which was a superb show by the way)...

However, if you are still in a reading-of-a-play mood (go on, admit it, you so are!) then join Christopher tomorrow night for a reading of 'The writing game by David Lodge (described as 'racy' by Chris, I'm already excited.... clearly I don't get out much).



The Writing Game is set in a barn, somewhere in the English countryside, where a horrific course on creative writing takes place. The students are entirely untalented and the teachers full of hang-ups and jealousies, which Lodge fully discloses in their literature and personalities.

Maude Lockett (Christine Estabrook) is the perfect foil for Leo Rafkin. While Rafkin can be read like a book, Lockett takes some reading between the lines. Gracious on the exterior, she is instilled with a perfect talent for the best-mannered English hypocrisy. So, of course Rafkin wastes no time demanding sex. And of course, Lockettat first appears shocked and, after revealing she has been married for 20 years, viciously lets Rafkin know she doesn't find him "irresistibly attractive."

Well, not until he finds her soaped up in the shower, at any rate . . . .

Enjoy some great beers, and a friendly enviornment... Hope to see you there!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
