Award winning writer Joanna Walsh presents a performance adapted from her digital book Seed (which can be read for free online at seed-story.com.)

Seed is the story of a 1980s Ophelia coming of age in the isolated countryside outside a raw new town.

‘Drenched in colour, sound and scent’ – The Times Literary Supplement.

Take part:

Joanna Walsh is looking for up to 16 women readers of any age (no experience necessary) to participate, who are able to attend a two hour workshop on the day. This will take place just before the performance (which will last approximately 30 minutes). Please contact badaude@gmail.com for further details if you would like to participate in Seed.

Joanna would like to thank Visual Editions, and Google Creative Lab for their work on Seed online, and Arts Council England for supporting the development of Seed and this event.
