They change lives and change viewpoints, open portals to other worlds and consume entire afternoons, spin yarns and recant histories and give breath to peoples past. They collect dust and take up valuable space yet have some magical power that makes them impervious to being discarded. They are oxygen, imagination, mental floss, dreams.

And the eight artists who have accepted the challenge of creating a brand new act based on the theme "Books" ARE:

* Trying on the furcoats in the wardrobe rather than venturing into all that unnecessary cold, comedy drag performer Virgin Xtravaganzah!

* Letting the balrog pass, no worries, neo-burlesquer Elsie Diamond!

* Keeping tight hold of the conch, hooper Helen Orford!

* Seeking a girl with dimpled elbows to be their bosom buddy, puppeteers Twice Shy Theatre!

* Seeing absolutely no value difference between two legs and four, showgirl Ruby Deshabille!

* Secretly fancying Draco WAY more than Harry, torch singer Em Brulee!

* Always bringing her diary so she has something sensational to read, belly dancer Sarah Stone!

* After 27 shows, starting to feel like she's in some Roulettian War & Peace, chanteuse Anna Lou Larkin!

All led by the Fagin's favourite pickpocket and scamp, Joe Morose, with Cho Chang.. I mean, Lilly SnatchDragon... on stage management!

If you ever wanted a theme with a literal infinite number of possible interpretations, this just might be it...
