Bottle & Glass – The Site Specific Play!

Posted on Sep 11, 2016 | 0 comments

We’ve been talking about it for years now, before the novel was even published, and now it is really going to happen!

Bottle and Glass has been adapted to a site-specific play, taking place in the streets, pubs, and taverns of downtown Kingston during WritersFest 2016.  Here is the notice:

Performance meets pub-crawl in this incredible theatrical adaptation of local author Morgan Wade‘s historical fiction Bottle & Glass. Follow the fortunes of Jeremy Castor and his cousin, Merit Davey, two young men snatched from the Cornish coast by the Royal Navy in the summer of 1813. They’ve arrived in Kingston, a town tense with the fear and deprivation of war. Paid, pent, and thirsty, their first riotous night ashore is spent at a tavern, the novel’s namesake, Violin, Bottle, and Glass. Audience members will pursue the story through the streets and pubs of Kingston, drinking along with the characters and experiencing the city’s history like never before.
