On Sunday, January 13, Speak Easy celebrated its 2nd birthday with a big party at Cheshire. Two years after kicking off it’s first show, Speak Easy is still going strong and continues to provide local writers and outlet to be heard. Over 100 different writers have crossed our stage since that first show, and that’s even with a constant stream of returning readers. This latest show featured an all-start cast of readers/performers who graced our stage in 2018. The sold-out crowd enjoyed great writing, prizes, party hats, and some delicious chocolate birthday cake. It’s safe to say a good time was had by all. Check out the pics below.
Next Up: Speak Easy is back on Sunday, February 10, with an open-topic reading. We’ll have a slate of mostly first-time readers taking the stage to share their short prose and poetry. It’ll be a great way to escape the winter doldrums. Tickets are available here.
