The Penny Readings in Grantham

Some comments collected from the audience at Raisin and Willow’s performance of The Penny Readings at the Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham on Friday (2 Nov):

What was wonderful about the Penny Readings?
“That you put our county of Lincolnshire on the map. Most people miss it out altogether.”
“Taking time to notice things.”
“The poetry, the details… the shoulder-to-shoulder of nostalgia and present tense.”
“The images conjured up by the stories.”
“A unique imaginative journey which makes me think about where I live anew. Magical.”
