Event Details

We’re delighted to welcome author and performer Jan Moran Neil who’ll be treating us to a reading from her new novel ‘Shakespeare’s Clock’.

Jayne’s confessions have now been whitewashed from lavatory walls, only to be unearthed in a third school friend’s 1969 diary. A cloud of sadness is now cast over the three women’s lives and only by revealing their own stories in later life can they move the stubborn hand of the undertaker’s clock forward. In doing so, something shockingly out of line is revealed …
