Beyond The Silver Pit


For many months – and miles – Adelle has been researching one strand of her family’s history in the fishing communities of Hull, and in particular an untimely death. The result is Beyond The Silver Pit, an epic poem that takes in the rituals, superstitions, culture and hardships of life at sea.

It recently opened in Manchester (more information here) and is going to be touring in the future as an exhibition along with visuals.

It is also a spoken word piece. Here it is being read by author Russ Litten, whose own novels I heartily recommend.
