Exit Stage Left, pursued by... a virus? In this new book, John Griffiths goes behind the scenes of how he dealt with lockdown.
Where were you when the lights went out on 16th March 2020? And what were you doing? John Griffiths was about to step out on stage at the Waterside, Aylesbury, in The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie. But, with less than an hour to curtain up, the curtain fell. Who dunnit? Why, Covid, of course. The Write Escape takes up the story from there...
Early in the first Lockdown, John had domestic chores to distract him, but they couldn’t fill the hole performing had left behind. Thus John decided to start each morning with three Ps – nothing to do with a weak bladder. Every day kicked off with a prayer, a poem and a psalm. All this reading got the creative juices going, and he began to write a daily blog. When several people said he should put these pieces in a book, he succumbed to the flattery and decided it was a good idea. This is the result.
A captivating debut by John Griffiths that is resonant with our times, with illustration from David Harmer. This exciting launch will comprise of an interview with a few selected excerpts read live, followed by a Q&A and book-signing. Discover more about the book HERE
