In 5×15’s first ‘conversational cabaret’ in Brighton, author William Fiennes charmed the audience with inspiring stories from the First Story charity. He included a prize-winning, six-word short story by his student that was printed on a pencil: it read ‘Went to shops. Won Lottery. Sorted.’
And sorted the evening was, with intimate harp playing by Lucinda Belle, stripped of her orchestra, and an impassioned, poetic memory piece performed by Lemn Sissay, based on his fostering experiences.
Rebecca Frayn privileged us with insights into the writing of her upcoming film ‘The Lady’, about Aung San Suu Kyi.
