A terrific week for Thames - and for a great night out go along and see the wonderful dramatisations from my book A Line of Duckboards.
|Line of Duck Boards|
|' A Line of Duck Boards' sees seven actors bringing to life the stale |
sentences and big stories from the Thames Star between 1916 and
1946. Hidden away in the letters to the editor or in the social columns,
author Meghan Hawkes has mined little gems now dusty and unread,
of the ordinary, sometimes extraordinary, trivial, light hearted, and
occasionally sad stories.
Venue: The Pumphouse, Bella Street, Thames - 7.30pm
