Geordie Plays Book Launch

7 November 2022

Last year, Ed Waugh published his Geordie Plays (Volume One), which HTBS wrote about on 21 August. Ed’s book comprises three of his plays, Hadaway Harry, Carrying David and The Great Joe Wilson. The book is published by Tyne Bridge Publishing in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The plan was to have an official book launch in 2021, which twice failed due to the pandemic. However, perseverance is the key to success, so a third attempt will happen on 26 November at 6 p.m. at Bewick Hall in Newcastle City Library, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Playwright Ed Waugh

Actor Jamie Brown, who starred in both Hadaway Harry and The Great Joe Wilson, will be singing some Geordie songs and John Gibson will share some stories about Glenn McCrory’s rise to world champion stardom in boxing. Via a video link, the director of the three plays, Russell Floyd, will join the event as will Kas Wilson, Joe Wilson’s Canadian great-grand-daughter.

This event is a part of Books on Tyne 2022: The Newcastle Book Festival, and the event ticket is only £4. To buy your tickets go here.

The event will be in the words of Ed Waugh – “a great crack!”
