Literary star to visit Edinburgh this week

Best-selling novelist, performance poet and occasional chanteuse – Rosie Garland – is heading to Edinburgh this Wednesday to perform in the long-awaited Poetry Bordello spoken word cabaret from Poetry Circus.

Poetry Circus artistic director, Max Scratchmann, said:  “We’re all totally thrilled that Rosie is coming all the way up to Edinburgh just to headline in our show.  At Poetry Circus we tend to shy away from traditional poetry readings and all our performers are the pick of the spoken word crop.  So, in addition to some of the finest performance poets in central Scotland this week we’ll also be featuring some music. burlesque and physical theatre and even a drag king.

“Our Poetry Bordellos are our most outrageous shows and they allow the poets to explore more personal themes like self and sexuality – plus everyone gets to dress up.  And, of course, we’re at the sumptuous Voodoo rooms so, all in all, it’s going to be a stunning evening’s cabaret.”

Tickets are £10 on the door or only £7.50 in advance from tinyurl.com/poetrybordello
