Greed from the past confronts good from the future – a tale to engage hearts and minds, even those unwilling to be opened.
In 2097 China rules Scarborough and the North York Moors following England’s need to pay back debts to China incurred several years earlier in a deep recession. An egalitarian republican enclave with a hi-tech infrastructure that allows everyone to live in prosperity, SEKABO is an idyllic city-state. Can rumours of a risqué film from 1990 that may be linked to the English Royal Family upset this settled world?
Monday 8 December 7.30pm
Following the sell-out success of Dinner with Dante during the Headingley LitFest in March, we are now presenting a sequel. This time, some of the classic stories of Giovanni Boccaccio will be read to you to help you digest your light supper, in English with some of the original Italian. They might be scurrilous, or even rather erotic, but they go perfectly with a glass of wine!
Gigliola Sulis and Richard Wilcocks are the readers
Giovanni Boccaccio (1313 – 1375) was an Italian author, poet, correspondent of Petrarch and important Renaissance humanist. Boccaccio wrote a number of notable works, including the Decameron and On Famous Women. He is particularly noted for his realistic dialogue, which differed from that of his contemporaries.
