Adrian Brown

     
PLUS OPEN MIC

Here's your chance to read/perform your work in front of an audience; to leave the isolation of the garret and come share with us. Write Angle’s monthly open mic offers you the opportunity to air your original funny, clever, silly, witty, crazy, mad, entertaining, and thought-provoking, etc, work.

On the other hand, you may just want to come and listen - but don't be surprised if you find yourself inspired by what you see/hear, and come back another evening, with a poem/story you never thought you could write and ask for a slot to read.

Write Angle’s compere makes every attempt to accommodate everyone but, in the unlikely event that it’s not possible to schedule you in, or you have less time than you might have liked - please come back and try again: your chance will come!

And you needn't worry - Write Angle is prepared to protect its audience members from having to listen to inappropriately abusive material, but thankfully, has not quite had to pull the plug on anyone yet!

 

Adrian Brown, TV, Theatre Success Now Turns to Humorous Poetry

After a successful career in theatre and television, during which he won seven awards as Director, including an International Emmy in New York and BAFTA Nomination in London, Adrian Brown has recently turned his energies towards an earlier love - writing poetry. His preferred form being for the longer, sustained, poem, both serious and humorous.

After his first publication, SAHARA, a picaresque humorously-reflective narrative of travel, he published FATHOMED DEPTHS and A BLAST OF BLASPHEMY.His latest work, THE RAM IN THE THICKET, was given its world premiere reading at the Indian Literature Festival in Delhi. This humanistic reinterpretation of the Abraham/Isaac myth tells a thrilling suspenseful adventure story, using sensually the full recondite and racy vocabulary of the English language, while also raising social and philosophical issues of relevance to the world situation today - the balance between faith and reason; between principle and pragmatism; even maybe whether there is a Truth higher than factual truth; high matters well worthy of the poet’s craft.

Adrian Brown has given readings of his works at many venues in London and around the UK, while also performing at events in Germany, Italy, Malta, Syria, Mexico and Turkmenistan.

His poem ROOM SERVICE won overwhelmingly, the First Prize in The Poetry Shack’s Valentine’s Day Contest, and at the Strokestown Festival in Ireland and he was a prizewinner with CHAC-MOOL, an exotic dark-toned poem deploring globalisation. He wrote an Elegy for Terence Rattigan, delivered at St. Paul’s, the Actors’ Church in Covent Garden, when a tree was planted to commemorate the playwright’s memory, where celebrities like David Suchet, Edward Fox and Donald Sinden fought for copies.

In his work as a television Director, Adrian has featured the work of numerous poets, including the only interview given by Ted Hughes, the Czech writer Miroslav Holub, Adrian Mitchell, and of course the luminous study of Emily Dickinson, The BELLE OF AMHERST, which starred Claire Bloom and won an Emmy in New York. The above list may sound all ‘po-faced’ when in fact, Adrian now considers himself mostly a humorous poet.

And don’t forget our Open Mic. It’s there for You to Read or Recite Your own Poetry and Play Guitar or whatever you’re good at! And if you want a ‘night out’, just come along and enjoy! We’re at Townhouse Pub/Bistro, 28 High Street, Petersfield, upstairs. We look forward to seeing you!
