The Playhouse is offereing a discount for teh show:
Many thanks for getting back to me about this and for your interest.
Great to hear you have a writing group who you think would like to attend, we’d love to have you along. I’ve been told that Matthew is keen for people attending the seminar to see the show as well, because he’ll be talking about it in depth in the seminar. But I’m very happy to offer your group a significant discount on the show if that would help? Tickets are usually up to £26.50 for The Kite Runner, but for £12 per person, I can offer your writing group members both a ticket to the show for any performance you’d like to attend, plus a space on the writing seminar. Does that sound ok to you?
Here are details of how to claim the offer if it’s of interest:
We would like to offer you £12 tickets for The Kite Runner. All you need to do is quote “KITE12” when you call the Ticket Office on 01865 305305. For more information about the production, visit http://www.oxfordplayhouse.com. Offer ends 5pm on Saturday 13 September
Please do let me know if you have any further questions or would like more details.
I started The Oxford Editors in 2007 to help writers at every stage and in every genre. We have a strong academic tradition as well as working with writers of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We also help children's writers, playwrights, screen writers and business writers.
We offer a wide set of services for writers from mentoring, manuscript assessment, copy editing, proof reading, ghost writing, query letter writing, literary agent search, and much more. We will write your blog for you, perfect that speech or help you self-publish that book. If you write, our team of published authors, publishing industry experts and academics can help you.
I am an award-winning writer and editor working on academic, non-fiction and fiction manuscripts. I regularly work with fiction and children’s writers as well as doctoral students. I have also edited books and papers for academics throughout the world, and for many authors at publishers including Oxford University Press, Harvard University Press and Yale University Press. I have also guided many writers of fiction to publishing success. I am an author, ghost writer and an international journalist. After the publication of my book, Unveiled: Love and Death Among the Ayatollahs, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei condemned me as ‘a notorious man-hater’ for the book’s strong attack on the violation of women’s rights in Iran.
I also work with writers as a mentor and I have guided authors of fiction, non-fiction and academic works. My latest book, a crime thriller, will be published soon.
I worked for many years at The Financial Times, The Independent and The Guardian and has been a regular contributor to The Economist. I have also written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The South China Morning Post and many other newspapers and magazines worldwide. I have appeared on the BBC – including Radio 4’s the Today programme and on Newsnight.
I have edited several major academic studies, and also edited books by professors at Oxford and Harvard – among others. As well as writing fiction for adults and children. I have also written several screenplays.
