Bookish is a collection of five brand new comedy shows from performers and comedians Laura Mugridge and Tom Adams: five mini shows each inspired by a different book and you get to choose which ones you see! Each show is a blend of comedy, live original music, a quiz and the stories of what happened when Tom and Laura tried to research the books. There will be a live vote on the night, and two shows (books) will be performed
The five books are:
The London A-Z
Ginger-My Story –(the autobiography of Ginger Rogers)
The Remains Of The Day –Kazuo Ishiguro
The Dairy Book Of Family Cookery
Tales Of The Unexpected –Roald Dahl
Suitable for ages 10+
