PLAY ABOUT LITERARY "HELL RAISERS" PREMIERES IN BROADSTAIRS
An extraordinary new play about the American "Beat Generation" gets its first staging on Thursday June 13 in the Red Hall, Broadstairs.
GOIN' TO SAN DIEGO is the work of Thanet's legendary Hags Ahoy company with Steven Todd.
Hag's Agoy last production was "Because Of The Moon", the much praised play about Virginia Woolf.
Now the company's turned their attention to the Beat Generation writers, including Jack Kerouac Allen Ginsberg and WIlliam Burroughs, who shocked 1950s America with a lifestyle based on drugs, sex and a desire to shock.
But GOIN' TO SAN DIEGO offers a very different view of these notorious rebels in a production packed with wit and laughter -- and some surprising casting
The talented Steven Todd plays writer Jack Kerouac, while Miranda Peacock, known for respectable lady-like roles, plays the controversial gay poet Allen Ginsberg.
"Goin' To San Diego," is on Thursday 13 -- Sunday 16 June at the Red Hall, Grosvenor Road, Broadstairs.
All performances begin at 7.30pm except on Sunday when the curtain rises at 3pm. Tickets are £6. Seating is limited, so booking is advisable. Ring 07989 070843 or email@example.com
