The house was so full at Cheshire for April 14th’s Speak Easy, that we had to turn people away at the door, which was beyond unfortunate since it was such an amazing show. With seven of the ten readers gracing our stage for the first time, it was a talent-filled afternoon with a nice balance of prose and poetry. We had published authors rubbing elbows with people sharing their work for the first time, and the attentive audience welcomed everyone equally. This show was the embodiment of what Speak Easy is meant to be: an outlet for writers of all talent and experience levels to be heard.
Next Up: It’s another open-topic Speak Easy on May 5th. Why wait until actual Mother’s Day to treat Mom? Bring her out for an afternoon of great writing and great drinks on the 5th. Tickets are available here. Don’t wait to get them at the door. Guarantee yourself a seat by buying them now!
