A live performance based on a reading of The First Bad Man, a novel by Miranda July.

Kitty Blennerhasset, John Benno, Rose McVittie and Freya Golden have recently joined a book club. Their first book is The First Bad Man and every week for a year they keep coming back to it.

This performance is a telling of these book club members’ encounter with the characters of Miranda July’s novel, reviewed by The Observer as: ‘Heartbreakingly sad, thoughtful, disgusting and hilarious’ Each person booking tickets for the performance will receive a copy of the novel in the post.

For ages 16 +

Audience members of The First Bad Man will receive a copy of Miranda July’s novel on arrival at the performance.
