Huh? But what’s HOMEWORK?
HOMEWORK is a monthly literary cabaret that runs six months of the year. Each month the Aisle16 writers have some homework to do, a new piece of writing relating that month’s theme. We then present this work for the first time in front of the loyal HOMEWORK audience. It’s sometimes a little shambolic, but it’s always exciting and inventive. It makes us try new things as writers and performers and it guarantees our audience something fresh.
Sometimes one of the residents tries a new one man show, or we collectively make a new show together. HOMEWORK has featured the world premieres of Who Writes This Crap?, Found in Translation, The Petty Concerns of Luke Wright, The Three Stigmata of Pacman, Local Boys Done Good, Luke Wright’s Cynical Ballads, Infinite Lives, and The Last Barman Poet.
We’re a friendly lot and we love having guest performers. Homework has played host to the likes of Tim Key, Kevin Eldon, Johnan Hari, Nick Hornby, Scroobius Pip, Kate Tempest, Jon Ronson and Kate Nash.
And it only costs a seven quid.
