WHAT: Play reading - Jack o' the Cudgel, or, The Hero of a Hundred Fights by William McGonagall
WHERE: FINNBRIT, Fredrikinkatu 20 A 9 (MAP)
WHEN: Friday, 28th October, 7pm
Andrew Chesterman will host an evening with WILLIAM McGONAGALL - culminating in a reading of his ONE AND ONLY play Jack o' the Cudgel, or, The Hero of a Hundred Fights.
"A UNIQUE drama!"
"Not a dry eye in the house!!!"
"Shakespeare himself wrote nothing comparable to this amazing work!"
"Pearl of Scottish culture"
For newcomers to the Bard of Dundee: his fame as Britain's GREATEST (bad) poet rests mainly on some poetic gems. We will start the evening with a selection of these, as the play is, sadly, fairly short.
As the great man said himself:
"Among the poets of the present day
There is no one on earth who can possibly be able for to gainsay
But that William McGonagall, poet and tragedian,
Is truly the greatest poet that was ever found above or below the meridian."
Free entrance. Bring a bottle and a friend! Remember that play readings are not performances!
