South Tyneside Writer to be Guest at Heritage Club

An opportunity to meet a writer who has adapted his late father's When the Boat Comes In books for the stage is on offer next week.

South Tyneside-born Peter Mitchell will give a talk at The Word, National Centre for the Written Word, next Wednesday.

The sequel to last year's successful adaptation, When the Boat Comes In: The Hungry Years, will be on stage from Thursday 12 September to Saturday 28 September at the Customs House, South Shields.

The production is based on the book series by his late father James Mitchell, which was also an iconic television show in the 1970s, and tells the story of the struggles of life during the inter-war period in the fictional town of Gallowshield.

At the talk to members of the Heritage Club, Peter will also discuss his debut novel 'Jack High' which follows on from the three books in 'The Boat' series.

Peter will give his talk on Wednesday 4 September at 2.00pm at The Word, Market Place, South Shields. Tickets cost £1.50 and can be purchased from The Word.
