SCRIPTS VOLUME 2 LAUNCH
(UPDATED - EXTRA GUESTS!)
We are delighted to announce that Saturday the 8th of April (the day before the London Locations Walkabout) sees the launch party for the second volume of "The Prisoner: The Original Scripts", edited by Robert Fairclough and published by Reynolds and Hearn. Running from 1.00pm until 6.00pm, the Reynolds and Hearn-sponsored event takes place upstairs at the Bath House pub, Dean Street, in London's Soho. As well as Robert, who also wrote "The Prisoner Official Companion" and "Prisoner: Official Fact Files", guests so far confirmed include Peter Brayham (stuntman on The Prisoner, subject to work commitments), Tony Sloman (series librarian), John S Smith (editor on 3 episodes), Ian L Rakoff (editor and co-writer of "Living in Harmony"), Nan Greifer (widow of "The General" writer Lewis). Unfortunately, Roger Parkes, Josh Greifer, and Vincent Tilsley are no longer able to attend.
Entry to the event is £30. This includes the cost of one copy of the book (rrp £24.99 - in a gesture to loyal Prisoner fans, attendees will effectively be getting the book for £20, £4.99 off the RRP) signed by all the guests present, one drink at the bar, and sandwiches. Cash only will be taken on the door as we have no provision to process credit cards. We hope that many readers of this website will attend the event, which promises to be as enjoyable as the event which accompanied the first volume (review of that event HERE). Please email Henry Holland at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm attendance, as numbers are limited (please mention this website when you write). Nearest tube: Tottenham Court Road. All guests appear subject to work commitments.
The book contains the original scripts for the final 9 episodes, plus the script for the unshot episode "Don't Get Yourself Killed" by Gerald Kelsey, and "Noises Off" - the unshot pilot episode of "The Outsider" - a planned follow-up series to "The Prisoner", written by Lewis Griefer and starring Patrick McGoohan. Also included is a foreward by Roger Parkes, and a history of Everyman Films.
An exclusive review of the, simply unputdownable, second volume of the book can be found in our reviews section.
With thanks to Rob Fairclough for the details, book, and cover image.
