Join me on Saturday at 2pm for another episode of Hannah’s Bookshelf on North Manchester FM. This week, my guest will be the wonderful Lewis Charlesworth (who you may remember from my GM Fringe Special back in June.
Lewis is a Bury-based former comedian and now playwright/director/actor. His debut play Cheaters: A Play About Infidelity got great reviews and was nominated for Best Comedy Play at the 2018 Greater Manchester Fringe festival. Since then, he’s continued to write and this winter sees his new piece, A Quiet Drink, tour new writing and scratch nights at north west theatres. He is now currently fundraising for next year’s big project: his new play The Greek, a comedy drama about British identity and Brexit.
The Manchester Theatre Awards blog reviewed Lewis’s debut play: “On the basis of Cheaters: A Play About Infidelity, it looks like Lewis Charlesworth’s transition from comedian to playwright has been a success.”
I’ll be chatting to Lewis about Cheaters, A Quiet Drink, and scriptwriting in general. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
Catch the show on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
