People’s College Drama Group – The Percy French Show

 

Hello World,

If anyone is around Dublin town next Friday or Saturday then pop along to this  great piece of entertainment. It’s a good laugh.  It’s in the Teacher’s Club.  See below poster – click to enlarge. 8.30 p.m. kick-off both nights.

.

Apparently, there’s free hambags / beers for everyone that turns up to this one as well!

.

Sad news is that I was due to appear in this production but  have now officially chickened out – so will only be in the audience on the Friday.  My Oscar will have to wait. Hey ho.

I don’t see sick babies, I see the Moth International Short Story Prize 2014.

 

.

If you consider your short stories to be your babies that you must care for and protect with your life, then now might be the right time for cutting the apron strings and letting them fend for themselves in the big, bad beautiful world i.e. The Moth International Short Story Prize 2014 is now open for entries!

As my local G.P., Doctor Smoked Salmon,  would say – “I don’t see sick babies, I see fifty pound notes.”

 .

See fifty pound notes yourself by entering a short story or two into this fine competition.

 .

So give your best baby a bath, remove all the potatoes from their ears and send them off in the post / internet to this competition with a packed lunch and a smile forthwith.

 .

(And just remember: if their sentences aren’t coherent enough or  their grammar isn’t up to scratch or the staple is in the wrong place or they haven’t been toilet trained, then this means that you’re to blame, so social services will be knocking on your door very soon indeed. You can put money on it. Although a tip to the wise: one well-placed exploding priest-with-red-trousers will always, apparently, get any of these lapses overlooked. But don’t let on I told you so).

 The deadline is 30th June 2014.

That’s not the cover by the way.

A few advance copies have been given to various “individuals” for review and comment.
