A LIVE literature show including a collection of contemporary world poetry is coming to the Belgrade Theatre next weekend.
Being Human, based on the third book in the Bloodaxe trilogy - following Staying Alive and Being Alive, will be performed at the Coventry venue’s B2 auditorium on Friday June 22 and Saturday June 23.
The production, which also includes music, projections and imagery, features poems on themes such as love, loss, fear and longing.
The West Midlands-based cast includes Ben Hastings, Elinor Middleton and former Belgrade Youth Theatre participant Barrett Robertson, who will return to his home city of Coventry to perform at the Belgrade.
Designed by Coventry-based theatre company Talking Birds, with whom the Belgrade recently co-produced the smash hit FA Cup drama We Love You City, the show will be directed by Interplay Theatre’s Artistic Director Steve Byrne.
Founded in 1978, Bloodaxe has won numerous major literary awards, including four Nobel Prizes and is widely regarded as having revolutionised poetry publishing in Britain. Staying Alive has now sold over 120,000 copies in Britain and over 40,000 in America to date.
Tickets, which cost £12.25 (concessions available) and cheaper if booked online, are available by calling 024 7655 3055 or visit www.belgrade.co.uk
