Newsflash Summer 2019
Dear Members and Friends,
Hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer with time to relax.
I write with great news, LLC has been chosen to give the opening performance for the William Blake exhibition which will open at Tate Britain in September. Our performance date is the evening of September 22nd. I am getting in touch so that members who would like to book tickets for this very special performance can do so now. Please see below for booking details.
This week we have the excitement of working with Dr. Rowan Williams in a workshop I am running on his new play on David Jones. More news about this at a later date.
Other great news is, that I am about to travel to the North of England for a meeting at Tate Liverpool, to discuss our Artistic Associateship with them. I will also be in Manchester for The Martineau Society annual meeting. I very much value this connection because, I think I have mentioned in a previous newsletter, my grandmother Vera Wheatley, wrote the first really important biography on Harriet Martineau. She was the first really important woman journalist in this country, a contemporary of Charlotte Bronte, and a person many members may be interested to know more about. LLC performed a dialogue I wrote between Charlotte Bronte and Harriet Martineau at last summer's conference. Catherine Harvey played Charlotte and Matilda Thorpe played Harriet.
Finally, while in Manchester I will attend a special day on Byron at the International Conference on Romanticism there. LLC’s performance work on Byron is remembered by many as very special.
It’s all go for LLC this July in the North of England !
Wishing everyone wonderful summer hols.
Your Artistic Director
Valerie F. Doulton
