It's poetry, but not as you know it! A live poetry show where the audience gets to decide what they want to hear, featuring poets Laura Williamson (Canada and Luggate), Annabel Wilson (Wanaka and Sumner) and Liz Breslin (UK and Hawea Flat).

Audience members are greeted with pen and paper on entry, and have the opportunity to write themes, topics and ideas on pieces of paper, which are, dropped, of course into a hat. Once on stage, the poets offer out the hat to the audience again, who pull out the pieces of paper – the poets are then challenged to perform or read poems related to what is on the paper.

Pretty much the opposite of the way you studied poetry in school; or, as one audience-member said after one of the trio’s recent performances: “Wonderful show. Rude poems are just so much funnier in an English or Canadian accent.”

Tickets available through Eventfinda or on the door.
Adult: $10
Youth & Unwaged: $5 (door only or email editor@lizbreslin.co.nz)
