I’m delighted to be doing a complete set at Per Verse Poetry in Portsmouth this week.
Michael Birchmore invites you to join him for an enjoyable evening of poetry set in the superb surroundings of The Canteen, Old Portsmouth well known for its tasty snacks and light refreshments including locally sourced wines.
This month we will be welcoming Peter John Cooper who will be reciting some of his excellent poetry.
A number of his works are published online and in paperback and he can be seen performing in clubs and small theatres in London and his home town of Bournemouth. He is best know for his experimental work both as a playwright and a poet.
In this excellent venue we intend to have some fun with an open mic night so anyone who would like to read their own or anyone else’s work can do so.
You are very welcome to join in or just listen and enjoy a lively summer evening of verse.
Tickets are only £4 in advance from The Canteen or from Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/per-verse-poetry-tickets-34653377184
or £5 on the door.
If you would like further information contact Michael Birchmore: firstname.lastname@example.org

I’m just finishing putting the last touches to a companion piece to The Fisherman’s Daughter. AsOne Theatre Company will be rehearsing this in January and then touring libraries and Arts Centres in the South West UK from February. The two plays together form an exciting evening and I’m delighted with the way they are turning out.

I’ve was very fortunate to take my family to see this incredible show, I’m a big fan of Peter John Cooper’s versatility when he writes. I’m sure all ages saw many different angles as they were immersed into this fast moving very well acted fun and educational show. With rocks, the sea, novels, a mad bird with one leg, an even madder librarian and the fisherman’s daughter. A must see for the whole family. Steve Biddle
