#170: 'Talk About Something You Like' (Trailer) by Byron Vincent

       Having been on fine form recently, including a 'must-listen' appearance on BBC Radio 4's 'Four Thought', we're pleased to present the trailer for 'Talk About Something You Like' by Byron Vincent.

       Described as a "theatre show about living with mental health diagnoses", Byron's uniquely articulated, first-hand take on the topic has garnered great reviews at Edinburgh Fringe 2014 and will hopefully be touring near you in coming months.

#154: 'Kill Your Darlings: Sex' @ The Cube, Bristol - 15th May 2014

       Summer officially landed this week and the doors of The Cube were flung wide-open to welcome in devotees of Bristol's leading literature night 'Kill Your Darlings', and to allow them to spill out freely onto the courtyard for some alfresco drinking. It was apt that to coincide with the arrival of the hottest season, this month’s event sported the raunchy theme of 'Sex', and appropriate that novelist Ned Beauman (no stranger to the written sex scene), was the headline act.

#150: 'Kill Your Darlings: Wasted' @ The Cube, Bristol - 8th April 2014

       Another exquisite portion of Kill Your Darlings was served up to the lit-loving Bristol masses at the Cube Cinema in this latest outing. Met with great anticipation, the event welcomed new 'darling', writer and poet Chimene Suleymen, whilst the superb Joe Dunthorne, author of Submarine, took the role of headliner. The nominated theme for performances this month was 'Wasted'.

#76: 'Blahblahblah' w. John Berkavitch @ Bristol Old Vic, 18th March 2013

       Exciting things are happening in the world of ‘spoken-word’ at the moment with several of the scene’s heavy-hitters currently touring shows that blur the lines between performance poetry and theatrical production. Kate Tempest’s play ‘Wasted’ and Inua Ellams’ ‘The 14th Tale’ have been receiving rave reviews for breaking away from traditional spoken-word formats, revealing yet another side to this amorphous art form. On Monday evening, Bristol got to see a scratch of John Berkavitch’s contribution to this cutting edge series of poetical plays in the form of ‘Shame’.

       Opening a new chapter for ‘spoken-word’ in Bristol, resident poet Byron Vincent welcomed Monday’s lyrical gathering with a brand new poem to kick off a brand new year in the Old Vic’s basement theatre. Despite the horrid weather outside, the first ‘Blahblahblah’ of 2013 attracted a very healthy audience as people settled in for a fresh dose of verbal medicine to cure their January blues.
