What is The Pocket Embassy?
When were you last read to; and by that we mean really read to, not an article out of a newspaper? Was it when you were a child? Perhaps you read to your children now, but how often do you feel that almost meditative sensation being read to creates?
The Pocket Embassy is Storytelling for an adult audience.
We will bring the transportive world of literature to an invited audience, reading short stories, novellas, poetry, one-act plays, extracts, essays and the like; performed by professional actors. Our aim is to disconnect you from the day, cocooning you from the fast and competitive city outside with warm words and intelligent language; giving you back time and space as you sink into a parallel world of great writing in a comfortable, informal setting; bringing you old and new works from the famous, the not so famous and the unknown. It will be calm, it will be elevating. The evening will conclude with a discussion, sparked by the reading’s, for those who wish to stay.
‘A literary feast!‘
‘…a rare treat to have an ‘intimate salon theatre’ experience.’
‘Another utterly enchanting experience!’
‘Bravo! A cracking night. Roll on the next one.’
‘It was an absolute JOY. Please do another one soon.’
‘The Pocket Embassy led me into an imaginary world far beyond the confines of the time and space I am accustomed to. I could relax, be inspired and dream.’
‘Transportive. Immersive – and hence relaxing’ “Where are you going to take us next?!”
