Foreign Affairs by Dart Travis is the first e-book fiction publication from Three Vee Limited, until now our ELT only imprint. It’s set in the long-gone glory days of ELT teaching in 1972 and is a humorous novel set in a large language school in Bournemouth (with some detailed and funny classroom sequences too).

Cover illustration is by Ed McLachlan.

Review added of John Ford’s Love’s Sacrifice by The Royal Shakespeare Company. This play has not been performed in 400 years and is produced as the “best play” from a list of late 16th / early 17th century plays which had never been performed in modern times. An absolutely stunning RSC production does it full justice.
