Loud Mouth Lit: Of Family and Food

  • St. Andrew's Bar and Grill (map)

WHAT:   Erstwhile Stranger Theater Genius-turned-fiction writer Paul Mullin curates a monthly series of readings in the back room of St. Andrew's Bar. Each installment pairs a reading of new story by Mullin with one written by one of his favorite Northwest writers.

WHO:    Local Pacific Northwest performer, director and arts activist, Sara Porkalob, author of the award-winning Dragon Lady. One of the first recipients of a Village Theatre Original Writers Residency, Sara has also garnered a Seattle Times Footlight Award andBroadway World Award for “Best New Play”. In 2019, she will develop and perform herDragon Cycle at American Repertory Theatre.

WHERE:     St. Andrew's Bar and Grill (in "the annex"), 7406 Aurora Ave. N, near Green Lake, Seattle.

WHEN:    Tuesday, September 25 at 8 p.m.

HOW:     Admission is free, but works by featured authors will be on sale and aggressively hawked from the podium.  Bring CASH!

WHY:    As a playwright, I advocated for fresh, organic, locally grown theatre, with an accelerated turnaround time (think “farm-to-table”). Now that I’m writing more prose, poetry, and short stories, I realize the same philosophy applies. That’s why Loud Mouth Lit is:

“Fresh, local, organically sourced."

“Focused on the range of the amazing writers living in Seattle and the surrounding area. Find out what they’re working on right now! 

“Face to face, live, and intimately irreproducible. These readings will not be recorded, filmed, or pod-casted. You have to come in person to get the good stuff!"
