I hope I am Write...

It's such a privilege to be working on this tour, although quite scary in some ways. Although we started in July, for the Olympics - not that the Olympics had any relevance, it just seemed like a good time to start - and we had a brilliant write-up in The Guardian, we've already changed quite a lot. In fact I'm re-writing the whole thing. And it comes with some sense of responsibility. I've just written one of the final scenes with Virginia Woolf and realise that apart from the difficulty of creating any sort of drama in the middle of a street in Soho, I'm making a few assumptions about her character. But then I suppose I want to create a drama, rather than an historical recreation...

I haven't figured out how to put comments on this blog, but I'd love to hear from you. You can email me at nick @ mavericktheatre.co.uk. Cheers!

About Us


Nick Hennegan Hello. I'm Nick Hennegan and I started the London Literary Pub Crawl. Most of the blogs on here will be by me. I've always written but my first theatrical success was an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Henry V' (www.HenryVPlay.com) I founded Maverick Theatre in 1994. (www.MaverickTheatre.co.uk) This pub crawl is really more a promenade theatre performance than a tour and I'm running it with a bunch of enthusiastic local actors and writers. I love sharing my passion for the area and the artists. I also present a radio show on Resonance 104.4fm - London's Arts Station and a podcast on our site. If you haven't visited us in London yet, I hope you'll come soon. And feel free to leave comments or email me at nick @ LondonLiteraryPubCrawl.com - I reply to them all and I love to hear from you.
