On the Verge

 

continued

Frequently changing viewpoints and fluid segues in and out of flashbacks illuminate actions readers have already witnessed. Part of the fun is heading into the past after knowing the future; even knowing where the story will go, you still wonder what will happen next.

That's because however much we want to know what will happen in a story full of twists and intrigue, we want most to understand what is going on between and inside the characters. What does each character want, the army men, the whores, the society folks? And how far will they go to get it?

Before you enjoy an involving read, come to the Blackbird Theatre in Shaut Cabaret on Wednesday, November 10, where a puppet show accompanies a reading by Rusty Mewha, Jamie Weeder, and Koja. You might want to appoint a lookout. Anything can happen to anyone under the Poppy.    (end of article)
