10 May
Painted Word: Land of Look Behind

By fusing the bar scene with theatre, this is truly a unique event. Come and enjoy a play reading, take part in the discussion after, drink a rum punch and enjoy the DJ set. Our play this time round is 'Land of Look Behind', by playwright Judy Hepburn and directed by Colin McFarlane.

The play is centred around Audley, a grumpy, old, Caribbean man who plays dominoes and drinks too much rum. His cosy 'safe' world is rocked when his beautiful airhead grand-daughter suddenly enters his life, with boyfriend in tow. Touching, humorous and topical, this play is not to be missed.

The key cast and crew include:

  • Actor/Director - Colin McFarlane: Colin is a celebrated actor and director. Film credits include ‘Batman Begins’ and it’s sequel ‘The Dark Knight’. He also directed the West End musical ‘Marylin and Ella’.

  • Actor - Malcolm Fredericks: Malcolm has appeared in countless TV and theatre shows over the years and is best known for his hilarious performances in comedy sketch show ‘Get Up Stand Up’, and as Beastie in ‘No Problem’.

  • Actor - Ram John Holder: Ram has also appeared in many TV and theatre shows over the years and is best known for his for his character ‘Porkpie’ in long-running and popular TV series ‘Desmonds’.

Time: 7pm
Address: The Tabernacle, Powis Square, W11 2AY
Donations of £7 will be accepted.

We are currently looking for new plays from emerging and established playwrights to produce as professional readings at Painted Word. Please come along to the event on the 10th and introduce yourselves, and/or send your scripts to info@paintedwordlondon.com

Painted Word began in 2004 as the brainchild of Marissa Lestrade (formerly Phillips). Starting at the Dogstar , in the heart of Brixton we then moved due to increasing numbers to Jamm, also in Brixton. Performance poetry was hugely popular at the time – and still is – and Marissa wanted to create a new style of entertainment.
