On Nov. 24th. at Holy Trinity Church in Penge, Christine Pope and Jane Sharp entertained their gathered audience with an afternoon of poetry.
There was some crafty rhyming and much laughter as Jane appeared in furs, a purple tutu, a tiara and sparkly boots to hold forth on ‘Posh Pinge’ in an accent which was far cry from her normal Yorkshire.
Christine, at one point, roamed the stage in flippers being a bog-snorkeler, the subject of one of the poems. There were poems about Decluttering, a typical Mega Bus journey from Sheffield to London, the listening skills of hairdressers, Chinese Whispers and the task of manoeuvring a bookcase up a twisting staircase.
There was one, from Jane, quite impassioned, about poetry itself. Their efforts were rewarded by gales of laughter at times and having tried it out on an appreciative audience Jane and Christine intend to take the show to other venues.
