Acclaimed actor Toby Jones will deliver a dramatic reading of Ed Atkins’s epic anti-poem, Old Food. Steeped in spoiled language and poorly Britishness, as performed by Jones at Christmas, Atkins’s text is a travesty of Dickensian ‘Carol Philosophy’; an abortive tradition.

Old Food (2019) is published by Fitzcarraldo Editions.
