The York Theatre Royal has revealed a lively programme of events as part of the York Literature Festival, taking place this March.

Orlando (26th March, 7.45pm), based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf. Rebecca Vaughan and writer-director Elton Townend Jones explore what it means to find our place in the world whilst remaining utterly true to who we are.

Old Herbaceous (22nd March, 7.45pm). Sown with seeds of gardening wisdom, this charming one-man show is a love story – a humorous portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants.

Telling the Blues (23rd March, 7.45pm), presented by The Crick Crack Club, is a night in the very fine company of those who’ve got the blues, those who defy the blues, those who cure them, and those who cause them.

What Days We’re Having Now (25th March, 7.45pm), presented by Jaybird Live LIterature, is a live anthology of subtly theatricalised poems performed by up and coming poets and new writers Alex MacDonald, Ella Freers and Will Harris that are, in turns, sweet, sad and funny.

Lost In A Sea of Glass and Tin (28th March, 7.45pm)  offers a textual and visual performance by Gary Winters and Claire Hind which responds to David Lynch’s concept of ‘the eye of the duck’, particularly with regards to what the eye can teach us about repetition, texture, shape and the colour of performance.

Where There’s Muck There’s Bras (29th March, 7.45pm). Performed by stand-up poet Kate Fox, this funny, gently subversive performance/lecture uncovers the hidden history of the writers, scientists, sportswomen, politicians, protestors, musicians and other heroines who represent the grit, determination and spirit of the North’s women.

Tickets cost £13. Students £8. Book online at yorktheatreroyal.co.uk or call the Box office on 01904 623568. For a full listing schedule of York Literature Festival events visit yorkliteraturefestival.co.uk
