OFF Book at the Margate Bookie

  • Morgan's Bar and Dance Hall 46 High Street Margate CT9 1DS UK (map)

OFF book is the club night where new writing leaps off the page and onto the stage. In its first ever live show, OFF Book is beaming into the present with three speculative versions of the present day.

The world is getting stranger every day. Just when you think things can't get any weirder, they prove you wrong. No wonder so many writers are using fantastical or speculative stories to interpret our fragile reality. We've picked three very different writers whose thrilling tales of the unknown take place in all-to familiar places, and transformed them into theatre. Plus, there’s fiction-related music and informal author chat, all in a cabaret atmosphere. Meet the creators, get your copies signed, discover new writing and acting talent, and to get closer to the creative process. It's a chance to see familiar faces and discover tomorrow’s talent, in a fast-paced irreverent atmosphere. But most of all a chance to watch great contemporary writing brought to life.

Tonight’s featured authors and books are:

  • Felicia Yap - Yesterday
  • Molly Flatt - The Charmed Life of Alex Moore
  • Matthew Blakstad - Sockpuppet
