(In The Barn Ultimatum) Tom Allsopp has created a world worthy of Gary Larson at his most bizarre.
Tom is a poet and performer from Hednesford, Staffordshire. He has been writing and performing poetry for two years now, despite the global pandemic getting in the way!
Tom writes for theatre as well as writing and performing poetry. He was an inaugural writer on Birmingham REP's Foundry scheme for artist development. He also regularly writes for 14/48 UK in Leicster and Wolverhampton.

The Librarian is a play about loss and redemption; of finding hope in a world of pain. A teacher who, in the midst of a personal tragedy, finds themselves unable to do the job they love. They find some solace in working in the library where they can hide from the world. This fragile tranquillity is disrupted when a student with serious issues of their own crashes in. Both of these lost souls are looking for answers and it might just be that they are the best chance each other has for finding peace.
