12 APRIL - THE EFFECTS OF LIGHT: TASMANIA IN VOICE AND VERSE

With Special Guest Tasmanian Poet TIM THORNE


14 JUNE - GRAND GRUMPS

Not all poetry is romantic or uplifting. Poets can get grumpy just like anyone else. An evening of grumpy poetry from different ages.

Join us for a crash course in all that is crabby, cranky, and cantankerous - or if you’re Scottish, crabbit and carnaptious - in the world of poetry.

What exactly is a grump? Is it different from a grumbler or a grouch? Who are the grumps in poetry? What is a Grand Grump? And who will win the title of Grandest Grump of all?

To explore these questions, crusty and crotchety curmudgeons, Cameron Hindrum and Michael Edgar, assisted by the terribly tetchy and testy, Yasmine Barratt, will embark on a light-hearted (but with serious undertones!) exploration of a woefully neglected area of the poetic canon.


9 AUGUST - A POM’S PATERSON

A look at the work of Banjo Paterson from the point of view of an Englishman.


11 OCTOBER - SHAKESPEARE SHAKEN & STIRRED

Well-known pieces from Shakespeare: sonnets, speeches & short scenes performed with nontraditional casting or settings e.g. gender or age-blind casting.
