The Book of Fête: Chapter Two
Have you committed a crime against literature? Maybe you’ve only pretended to read Dostoyevsky. Maybe you’re guilty of buying more books when you already have a teetering to-be-read pile. Maybe you haven’t read a single Harry Potter book! Well it’s time to serve your sentence.
Experience the Old Melbourne Gaol as you never have before – by night, with an incredible soundtrack of jailhouse rock courtesy of Melbourne-grown, New Orleans–inspired jazz and blues virtuosos Jazz Party. Award-winning comedian Judith Lucy leads a line-up of special guests who will serve up literary punishment to all those who deserve it, and perform readings that will make you cringe. Then get out of the shackles and onto the dancefloor!
MWF and immersive theatre-makers The Boon Companions invite you to serve your time. Dust off your jumpsuit, and throw yourself into an evening of music, spoken word, and some truly terrible poetry.
Doors open at 7.45pm; performance starts at 8pm. Drinks will be available for purchase from the bar.
Melbourne Writers Festival is delighted to announce a new series of soirées, The Book of Fête.
Partnering with immersive theatre-makers and local art collective The Boon Companions, we will present a series of monthly affairs, each with a new theme, new location, and new array of secret special guests. Limited tickets will be available to these nights of music, dancing, spoken word and sartorial elegance. Subscribe to MWF eNews to hear about the next party!
