Preview: 17Percent to present plays at the Rochester Literature Festival

The Spirit of my Dream flier

The Spirit of my Dream

Last year as part of the Rochester Literature Festival, 17Percent presented She Writes: What’s through the door? our 4-star show based on a short story by HG Wells, which received rave reviews.

“I thought the quality of the overall writing was very good and very entertaining – and the acting was outstanding.”

This year, we are pleased to present another trio of plays by female writers, loosely inspired by a poem by Byron ‘The Dream’.

The writers have this year used Byron’s poem as their starting point and written three very different plays, which also reference Lady Caroline Lamb’s infamous description ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’.

More information will be posted about this event, as we work on the production over the summer. But for now, put the date in your diary!
