Part One of our Community Read of Magpie Hall by Rachael King was tea and tales (and cake) on Friday morning.
Part Two on Friday evening was a night of improv and laughs. South Library was the venue, and there was a good-sized crowd.
We had a nice introduction from Rachael, Councillor Phil Clearwater, and Libraries Manager Carolyn Robertson.
Then it was onto the comedy. The two improvvers were very clever, making good use of some props, wordplay, and guest appearances from the audience. Magpie Hall became Budgie Manor in a variety of fast and furious skits, and roars from the audience peppered the show.
