Catherine Smith's new work 'The New Cockaigne' to be performed at the Lewes Arms

Catherine Smith's new work The New Cockaigne, 'a rollicking ballad of revolution and fantastical carnal excess', will be published by The Frogmore Press in the next few days.


The cover was designed by Rob Macdonald.

​'Delicious, delightful and more than a little bit frightening, Catherine Smith’s The New Cockaigne creates a verbal feast of sexual, gastronomic and alcoholic excesses. A fascinating satire on how totalitarian thought processes imprison us all.' - Ros Barber

If you're free on Friday 14th November 2014 please come along to The Lewes Arms (upstairs), Lewes, East Sussex, to the first performance of a new Live Literature show adapted from Catherine Smith's long, surreal poem The New Cockaigne.  It will be performed by Andy Sykes and Laura Freeman, with live music from a live musician, and directed by the wonderful Mark C. Hewitt. There are two performances at The Lewes Arms (7pm and 9pm).

The book will be available for a very reasonable £5 on the night, and afterwards.
