Reading Between The Lines, the Island’s BIGGEST spoken-word and poetry night returns to the Ventnor Exchange, and we’re beyond delighted to finally welcome one of the leading names in UK Spoken-Word; ROB AUTON, and his Edinburgh Fringe award-winning ‘The Sleep Show’.
The Sleep Show is a comedy/theatre/talking show about sleep by award winning writer and performer Rob Auton. Having explored the colour yellow in 2012’s ‘The Yellow Show’, the sky in 2013’s ‘The Sky Show’, faces in 2014’s ‘The Face Show, water in 2015’s the Water Show, Rob now turns his attention to sleep with 2016’s ‘The Sleep Show’. The Sleep Show is suitable for anybody who has slept or seen someone sleeping.
“Few artists have ever managed to consistently provide me with such joy and pleasure as Rob Auton” – Scroobius Pip.
Support comes from the much loved local wordsmith IVANA POPOV, the captain of Cowes Speak himself, Mr. ADAM GATERELL, the belle of Boomtown Fair herself, Miss DORIS DOOLALLY, and the Guv’Nor of RBTL, and 2015 Bestival spoken-word champion, KING STAMMERS.
