Aye Write Festival, Glasgow
Billingham and Brookmyre are Indiscreet
Friday March 16 21:30
Mitchell Theatre
Tickets: £8:00/£7:00
It’s always a delight when authors come together to celebrate the capricious spirit of creativity, and to show their profound respect for everyone who plays a part in their journey through the world of literature. However there’s only so much of that you can stomach, so by about half past nine we reckon you’re ready for the dark side. Mark Billingham and Chris Brookmyre will therefore present a show where readings from their latest novels and the weighty discussion of genre are jettisoned completely in favour of cheap laughs and dirty stories. They will lift the lid on the real world of being a writer. The angry letters from readers. The backstage shenanigans. The banter and the bampots. Expect strong language, very strong language and at least one extremely disturbing story about a chicken.
