One Night Only for Arthur Meek play in Devonport


For one night only
Monday 8 October 2012

This beautiful and moving play by former Michael King Writers' Centre resident Arthur Meek has been described as "superbly moving, exquisitely staged and wonderful"....and Laurel Devenie's performance as "astonishing and nothing short of extraordinary".
