JL Williams reading at The Village Pub Theatre

I will be reading a short piece called CIRC tomorrow night (Thursday 14 June) at 8pm at The Village Pub in Leith as part of James Ley’s wonderful new project called ‘The Village Pub Theatre‘.  We enjoyed a marvellous reading of Colin Bell’s play Best Kept Small Town last night, and tonight there is work by Morna Pearson, James Ley and Ripping Scripts, and tomorrow night also on will be Jenna Watt, Morna Pearson and Catherine Grosvenor.

It’s a fabulous space, so many bright stars and happy faces to see and a super initiative that will hopefully be the beginning of a regular event; the sort of thing folks will talk about fondly in future… I was there when…  hope to see you there!
