The Budapest Bardroom

Date and time: 
05/07/2011 19:30

Saturday, May 7, 19:30-21:00 The Budapest Bardroom. Our main performers will be returning veterans of the Hungarian English-language literary scene, but new to the Bardroom: Rani and John Drew, visiting from Cambridge (England, not Massachusets). The couple has been teachers in numerous countries in Europe (including Hungary) and Asia. Rani is a playwright with dozens of plays under her belt; many of them produced in Hungary -, and poetry and short fiction published on three continents. Her play Cleopatra was performed in Hungary, Romania, Macedonia, Spain, the U.K. and India. This time she'll read from her new novel, The Dog's Tale: a Life in Buda Hills. At various points in his life, John was a journalist, a postman and a teacher, who has run poetry workshops in Hungary, Spain, Germany, Poland, England, China and India. He's written several books of poetry, including The Buddha at Kamakura, which has been translated into Hungarian, Romanian and Japanese. And of course, as usual, your friendly Bardroom MCs Jeff Taylor and Kalman Farago will provide fiendish quiz questions, a cutthroat poetry competition and open mike slots. at Discover Budapest/Treehugger Dan's Lazar u. 16,
