This series of specially written comedy songs and sketches has been created by members of Bench Theatre as a special production in aid of the 2009 Havant Literary Festival. Another chance to see some of the hilarious sketches form last year with a few new ones added for good measure.
A bungled escape job has hilarious consequences.
At a book festival, crime writers start taking liberties with their genre and quality writing suddenly takes a turn for the worse.
It's medieval England and this new "book" technology has some of the older scroll-users flummoxed. If only the technology help-desk was actually helpful.
The rules of the library are taken to extreme as the customers (forbidden to talk or make a sound in the library) must act out the titles and plots of the books they want to borrow.
Song by Joshua Radin
A twist on the classic sketch, an expert doesn't really know what he's talking about.
Song by Lucy Flannery (after Gilbert and Sullivan)
A truly literary team doesn't really have what it takes, when it comes to competing on the sports field.
This revue of songs and sketches was staged at The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre (formerly Havant Arts Centre), East Street Havant - Bench Theatre's home since 1977. The performance was given free of charge after the Friday evening Bench production of 'A Higher Education'.
