Sat 25 April - Burjesta Theatre presents Medea by Euripides

Burjesta Theatre presents ‘Medea’ ….a midnight mind and a sunless soul The most shocking play from the Classical Greek Age from the pen of ‘that most tragic of tragedians’ - Euripides. Written in 431BC, Medea is a truly subversive play which has shocked and divided audiences for the last 2, 500 years. Medea, lover of Jason – of the Argonauts fame – has been abandoned by him for the King’s daughter and now faces exile for herself and her two young sons. But whosoever thinks Medea will passively accept her fate is dangerously mistaken. Watch her, as she schemes to make just what is unjust, watch her as her mind creates an unimaginably terrible revenge. A cast of 16 - Featuring an eight-strong all-women Greek Chorus And two child actors in An original adaptation by the poet and writer, Jonathon Bibby.

Sat 25 April - MERSEYSIDE LGBT BOOK GROUP:RE-LAUNCH!

We are re-launching our novel-reading(all genres) Book Group, in the sense that this meeting will be a (loosely!)facilitated open discussion, by the new Group organizer, about the way forward for the group, principally the format: do we continue having a "set" novel, chosen in turn OR do we have a theme(eg coming out, love, etc etc)where we each present a novel for a few minutes on this theme and, thus, share enthusiasms; OR alternate the 2 formats; OR anything else which is workable that people can think of. We shall then make a majority decision! Also, we DO have a chosen book: "My Policeman"(Bethan Roberts), in paperback, a poignant and atmospheric recreation of 50s Brighton, about a triangular relationship between an out gay man, his married lover,and the woman the latter marries, written in the voices of the woman and the out gay man. Usual venue; we shall be upstairs (20 stairs; no lift); turn sharp right at the top of the stars and you shall see us with books/kindles! All lgbtq, over 18, welcome; and no commitment beyond your first meeting; you can just have a taster! You do not have to buy more than a soft/cold drink; but the venue sells ciabattas, cakes etc :)
