Season Six of HOMEWORK starts in on 26 June. It happens on the last Wednesday of the month through to November at The Bethnal Green Working Mens’ Club.
Season Six – 2013
Wednesday 26 June – TASTER MENU
Come sample the best of our wares. Homework returns with three 30 minute extracts from three new live lit shows. Luke Wright gets out his Essex Lion; Ross Sutherland asks us to Stand-by For Tape Back-Up; and Tim Clare tries to shake off his Pub Stuntman persona.
Wednesday 31 July – RESEARCH
Stories about writers undercover. The HOMEWORK boys reveal the lengths they’ve gone to to get to the truth. And not a Wikipedia page in sight.
Wednesday 28 August – TRUE STORIES
It’s that time of the year when HOMEWORK rips off The Moth. The boys tell true stories live on stage, without notes. There’s special guests too, in the past they’ve had Jon Ronson, Johnann Hari and Nick Hornby, who will we rustle up this year?
Wednesday 25 September – MONOLOGUES
Your favourite HOMEWORK writers are not feeling themselves tonight. An evening of hiding behind characters, some played by real life thespians.
Wednesday 30 October – TRANSPORT
Planes! Trains! Automobiles! Osborne and Wright present a scratch of their work-in-progress Where The Railways Were, a new poetry show about Dr. Beeching’s cuts and the other residents show off new work about getting from A to B.
Wednesday 27 November – CHAT SHOW
Move over Wossy, HOMEWORK is reinventing the chat show. Our season finale features top guests, a house band and enough big reveals to last the Winter. You’ll never watch Graham Norton again.
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 fiver.
