      Pepys and the Playhouse

      Anyone in London next month might be interested in this “dramatic reading” about Samuel Pepys and the theatre. Here’s the full blurb:

      > A dramatic reading devised and presented by Colin Pinney
      > Thursday 16 June 2011, 7pm (doors open 6:15pm)
      > In his own words Pepys gives a frank picture of the intrigues and affairs (including his own) of the 1660s, wrestling with his conscience - and sometimes his wife - as he follows the drama, on and offstage, of the Restoration playhouse. This was the age of plague, fire - and Nell Gwyn. The performance takes place in the Withdrawing Room of Dr Johnson's historic house in the City of London.
      > In costume.
      > "Hugely enjoyable" - Cheltenham Festival
      > £15/£13 concessions , includes a glass of wine, must be booked in advance.
