  • Chloe Lamford at Unicorn Theatre

  • 'Beginners', 20 Mar - 15 Apr 2018
    Unicorn Theatre, London.

    Beginners tells the story of three families trapped in a waterlogged holiday cottage over summer. The children are bored. The adults are down the pub. So far so normal.

    Renowned, award-winning writer and director Tim Crouch (National Theatre, Royal Court, Unicorn) presents this joyous and imaginative new play for families everywhere. Beginners is an exquisite, funny and moving story that reminds us that the adult we’ll become - and the child we were - stay with us wherever we go.

    Chloe Lamford and Camilla Clarke strike with a set design which perfectly encapsulates both the cramped space of their holiday bedroom and the vastness of their imaginative play world. What is originally a simple set of fours beds positioned in a square is transformed into a forest of flowers, as the children put on a play for the only adult who seemingly cares enough to watch.

  • New book "Break.up" by Joanna Walsh

  • The internet has collapsed the boundaries of time, space, and desire. However far apart lovers are, they can instantly be present. So can they ever really break up?

    This is the question Walsh's narrator must reckon with as she travels across Europe after the end of a love affair conducted largely online. This pilgrimage through 'offline' space dictated by chance - on railways, on buses, on planes and, above all, on foot - wrestles with the dangers of converting longing into language, and reclaims and reshapes the territory of the male travel writer by creating personal and innovative maps of cities by which Walsh navigates the complexities of modern love.

  • Eley Williams has won the Republic of Consciousness Prize for Small Presses

  • Hackney-based independent publisher Influx Press has won the 2018 Republic of Consciousness Prize for Small Presses for its title Attrib. and Other Stories by Eley Williams.

    Influx Press, an outfit run out of east London by Kit Caless, Gary Budden and Sanya Semakula, published Williams’ debut collection last year. The book, which is centred upon the difficulties of communication, has gone on to earn widespread critical acclaim from the likes of The Guardian, The Telegraph, the New Statesman, and the London Review of Books, and has been longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize.

    Neil Griffiths, the founder of the prize, said Influx's achievement was "exactly what the Republic of Consciousness Prize was set up to reward".
    "A small press that is so focussed on what it wants to publish it can see unusually brilliant writing more clearly – especially when it comes to short stories", he said. “Eley Williams is that rare thing, a deeply serious writer working on a playful level. In the middle of her story 'Smote', I was floored. I realised I was reading a prose poet of a very high calibre indeed, and I said to myself: this book will win. The judges agreed.”
