DiscovER Stories by John Godber coming to East Riding Libraries

Lit Up Festival is thrilled to present a newly commissioned work by one of the UK’s most performed playwrights, John Godber, which will tour East Riding Libraries at the end of this month, as part of the Out of this Word programme. 

John has worked alongside a trio of emerging playwrights from The Writing Squad: Georgia Affonso; Ruby Lawrence and Lydia Marchant, to re-imagine East Riding histories. The piece is entitled HERE and NOW and it will see three trainee librarians battling with books, boilers and bad parking as they uncover amazing stories!

Festival director Dorcas Taylor said : “Unbelievable, unimaginable  and untold, East Riding’s remarkable history is alive and well and in a library near you!”
