The Incomers goes into rehearsal on UNESCO World Poetry Day

What better day to start rehearsals for Murray Lachlan Young’s new verse play The Incomers than on UNESCO world poetry day!

Image Written entirely in verse (mainly blank verse with quite a bit of rhyming verse thrown in too) the Incomers is a lurid, yet blistering funny  tale of sex, drugs and perfectly seared scallops.  Set around a 10th wedding anniversary four friends find their lives unravelling as revelation follows revelation until we become aware that no one has been telling the truth to anyone about anything for a very long time!

You can listen to Murray introduce the play here:-

And heres a sneaky little extract –  with Murray himself reading all the parts!

You can listen to more audio on our audio boo site (or below) and dont forget to visit the incomers web site here.

Although in many ways ‘a love letter to Cornwall’ it’s a real made in Devon story.  The Incomers came out of workshops at Beaford Arts and at Dartington and is now being rehearsed in Exeter (at Emmanuel Hall – the home of Theatre Alibi and Hope Hall) before moving onto North Devon Theatres where the show opens on the 18th April.
