CODICOTE comedian and author Johnny Tait will be signing copies of his book Conscience in Welwyn Garden City this weekend.

Johnny will be in The Bookshop, in the Howard Centre, tomorrow (Saturday) ahead of the book’s stage adaptation at the Hawthorne Theatre next month.

Conscience shows Tait’s stand-up training in its often very funny dialogue but mines a more serious side of things with its themes.

The play opens with three people meeting for the very first time: a retired police officer; a bitter and twisted divorcee; and a young girl with a huge cross to bear.

Why are they there? And where exactly is ‘there’?

Before the evening is over, the three main characters will realise they have more in common than they knew and they – and the audience – will have been on an emotional rollercoaster ride culminating in a dramatic twist sure to send shivers down your spine.

Adapted from the novel of the same name, and featuring adult language and situations, Conscience is a hard-hitting and thought-provoking story based, in part, on actual events.

Author Johnny Tait will himself give a pre-show talk at 6.45pm on Saturday, April 21, before the show starts at Campus West at 7.30pm.

Before then, there will also be the book signings at The Bookshop in WGC tomorrow between 10am and 4pm.

Tickets for Conscience at the Hawthorne Theatre cost £9, and there’s a 10 per cent discount for groups of 10 plus.
