We are in London.

The time is 1722.

We are at the 18th Century equivalent of a writer’s festival. A mature man in full wig sits at a high desk.

He is Daniel Defoe.

This celebrated writer has just published his latest work,

'Journal of the Plague Year'.

​​

An interactive show,

Defoe will invite his audience to paint parallels of life during the Great Plague of 1665

and the one that we can all relate to-now.

Text  from 'A Journal of the Plague Year' by Daniel Defoe
