COMING SOON ''MY MOUTH BROUGHT ME HERE''

A contemporary play, a combination of Stories delving into Freedom of expression and Dictatorship, Freedom of expression and Censorship. The ''Text committee'' or the ''Purifiers of Language'', those whose writings are in Sync with the Text Committee are fine, but the fate of the Poet is more grievous. The text committee ensures only ''Sour'' and ''Rotten'' little poems are published, miserable caterpillars of poems scrunched up for f...ear of the Tempest. Any one who questions ''Cultural Heritage'' or questions the Text committee is confined into Bedlam, labelled a deranged heretic. Even the ''Ngaka'' (weaver bird) that whispers ''Kwa Kwa'' has had her Winged Clipped, her voice Toned down and told by the ''Text Committee'' she must only Whisper ''Kri kri'' the fate of the Poet whose work includes ''Why do migrants not return'' is unknown. Other contents within ''My mouth Brought Me Here includes The Death of Mr Ali, (A Baghdad Spy) ''The Theory of Shouting''. ''

 
''At last I'll be able to love you until the dawn
erase from your eyes the languid depthless nights
spent waiting for me at the bedside of our dreams
while on the damp earth of a prison cell somewhere
in the world of men spiders play with my hair''

Hello Eric. I'm pleased you can come to the Critical Chinwag and sorry I haven't got back to you sooner.
We will be meeting at the front entrance of Chapter Arts Centre at 7.30pm to collect our tickets.
I do hope you can still make it and I look forward to meeting you all there.
All the best.
from Anna
