Literary Death Match

Thursday 23rd June 2016 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Literary Death Match, now in 60 cities worldwide, was called "the most entertaining reading series ever" by the LA Times. The live show brings together four authors to read their most electric writing for seven minutes or less before a panel of three all-star judges. After each pair of readers, the judges take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary — in the categories of literary merit, performance and intangibles — then select their favorite to advance to the finals. The two finalists then compete in a vaguely literary competition to determine who takes home the Literary Death Match crown.

Literary Merit: Anita Sethi, award-winning writer, journalist and broadcaster
Performance: Katia Kvinge, Scottish BAFTA New Talent Award-nominated comedian, actor, improviser
Intangibles: Gemma Whelan , Game of Thrones' Yara Greyjoy, and feat. in BBC Two's Upstart Crow
Super-Intangibles: Felicity Ward, actor, comic and winner of Best International Show at NZComFest 2016
