Readers' Theatre

Many people are aware that Aleister Crowley was a poet, but few are familiar with the extent of his work. In addition to poetry such as the Hymn of Pan and a few others, Crowley wrote quite a few dramatic works though most people have only heard of the Rites of Eleusis and perhaps The Ship. Further, the wider body of poetic and dramatic works from the broad world of contemporaries and those inspired by Aleister Crowley, including many members of the Golden Dawn, offer an amazing array of wonderful works.

Recognizing that public speaking and performance are one of the greatest fears of most people, this will be a safe and supportive environment to explore and expand that personal edge through readings from the broad corpus of works mentioned above. Attendees will have an opportunity and are encouraged to share their own favourite pieces, as well as participate in impromptu, unrehearsed readings of works with others.
