Soho Act Two nearly ready. Are you?

Posted by Simon Plant on Sunday, October 28, 2012 Under: Nick Hennegan
If you've been on the tour, you'll know that the Fitzrovia leg is more theatrical than the Soho leg. We enact various scenes, including Anthony Burgess (Clockwork Orange, etc) meeting a knife gang in the Duke and Dylan Thomas meeting his wife at the Wheatsheaf. But then Soho becomes a more 'traditional' tour. That's about to change very soon. I've written a number of pieces around our Soho artists and writers and I hope its going to transform what we already have.

I'm very pleased with critical reaction to our show so far. But I hope this new script will move things to another level. As much as you can on a freezing street in Soho in November! I can't say too much more at this point as I've not shown the new stuff to the cast yet. But we're meeting tomorrow night for a first read through and I'll let you know how we get on.

By the way, if you are a writer, do you have a favourite software? My Final Draft has stopped working since I upgraded to Lion and I'm blowed if I'm going to spend hundreds of pounds again. Let me know if you have any faves and I'll blog them on here.

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' ( I founded Maverick Theatre in 1994. ( 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 @ - I reply to them all and I love to hear from you.
