The Palace of Varieties Special
Saturday 11th April
A phantasmagorical evening of spoken word comes to one of Newcastle’s newest venues.
CHris Stewart previews his Edinburgh 2015 spoken word show The Palace of Varieties. A one off special at Alphabetti Theatre's new venue from three of the northeast's most unique voices.
CHris Stewart - The Big H
Kirsten Luckins - The Silent K
John-Clovis Morden - The Double Barrel
The Palace of Varieties is a latter day danse macabre telling the tale of Millennials trapped in the revolving door of nightlife games.
CHris has toured on Apples and Snakes' Public Address II, and performed his one person game-show Meta-Reprogramming at the Edinburgh PBH Free Fringe.
