A reading of work in progress scenes from a new play by Jonny Woo.
Jonny is excited to share a selection of scenes from the play he has been researching and writing since April this year. Silvertown is set in a pub called The Kent Arms (a real historical pub) in Silvertown in London’s Royal Docks. Jonny’s play is set in 1962 when The Docks were alive and buzzing. Work was plentiful, life was tough but the community was strong. The queers of The Kent Arms had to know how to look after themselves and would give the hardest dockworkers a run for their money. They threw in Polari amongst the local slang and The Kent Arms became a notorious pub loved by many, loathed by some and frequented by sailors, mods, queers, dockers and Princess Margaret. Jordan, a young femme queen, comes across this place by chance and falls for a closeted dockworker. They are embraced by this wild community but there is a dark presence amongst them.
Actors reading include: Jonny, George Heyworth, Ian Holmes, Rosie Akerman, Kevin Davies, Dominic Holmes and Dior Clarke.
