Verb New Voices from ARC in Stockton-on-Tees

Ian McMillan takes to the stage in front of an audience at ARC in Stockton-on-Tees to introduce the last of the Verb New Voices performances. Two emerging spoken word artists, Degna Stone and Michael Edwards premiere the pieces they've developed over the Summer. Richard Milward, whose novels 'Apples' and 'Ten Storey Love Song' gave an insight into the bleak, fascinating and sometimes shocking lives of Middlesbrough teenagers. For The Verb he'll be performing a commissoned piece about how he writes. Local playwright and performer Alison Carr returns to The Verb with a work in progress entitled 'The Illumination Of Beatrice Munroe'. And, why writers all over the country look forward to an envelope post-marked Stockton.
