The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval. Doors open at 11am.CATEGORY: Film

A new generation is rewriting the rules, and Lil Peep may just be at the forefront. He emerged from the hazy SoundCloud underground with 2016’s Hellboy, redrawing the lines of genre by instinct: a rap artist with earnest lyrics indebted to emo, an emo artist unafraid of hip-hop’s directness and contemporary sound, an auteur whose gritty aesthetic belies his broad appeal. Originally from the East Coast, Peep dropped out of high school and moved to Los Angeles at 17, kicking around the city couchsurfing and living under the radar. A music obsessive, he bought a cheap microphone and interface and began recording directly to garage band, synthesizing an array of marginal subcultures into a grungy, cohesive whole that defies easy categorization. A following gravitated to him immediately, with the release of “Star Shopping” in 2015. Despite his growing fanbase, his day-to-day is unchanged. He doesn’t go out, and keeps a tight circle sticking to friends and collaborators like fellow Goth Boi Clique artists Lil Tracy, Horsehead, and Wicca Phase.

In this provocative new novel, the author of Root, Petal, Thorn offers a powerful story of resilience, hope, and the secrets that, no matter how deeply hidden, can shape and ultimately unite a family. What connects us to one another? Is it shared history? Is it ancestry? Is it blood? Or is it love? People respond to tragedy in different ways. Some try to move on. Some don’t move at all. A year after her young son’s death due to a rare genetic disease, Emma Hazelton is still frozen by grief, unable and unwilling to consider her husband Noah’s suggestion that they try to have another child. As the future Emma once imagined crumbles, her family’s past comes into sharp relief. Searching for the roots of her son’s disease, Emma tries to fit together the pieces in her genealogical puzzle. Hidden within an old wedding photograph of her great-grandparents is an unusual truth Emma never guessed at—a window into all the ways that love can be surprising, generous, and fiercely brave . . . and a discovery that may help her find her own way forward at last. We're proud to welcome Ella Joy Olsen to The Printed Garden on Saturday, October 14th to read from, answer questions about, and sign copies of her new novel, Where the Sweet Bird Sings. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.CATEGORY: Book Readings and Signings
