A community play reading event. Griswold, By Angela J Davies.


Join others on 31st August to read a script about Griswold, the story of the 65 year old woman who engineered her own criminal arrest on the eve of the sexual revolution, and the extraordinary events that led to the establishment of the rights of sexual privacy in the United States.

The landmark and now increasingly relevant, United States Supreme Court case, Griswold v Connecticut, struck down laws prohibiting birth control, established a right of sexual privacy, and directly paved the way for other guarantees of liberty, including, on the 60th anniversary of the Griswold case, the right of same-sex couples to marry.


Date: 31st August 2023

Time: 7pm (free meal with every ticket at 6pm)

Venue: The Playground Theatre - Box Office 8 Latimer Road, W10 6RQ


Griswold Reading Duration: 90 Minutes

Discussion: 30 Minutes.

Free (suggested £3 donation to associated charities).

No experience necessary - community and actors read side-by-side.

ADKC's Access Group - which campaigns for a more accessible world - has written to Train Companies to object to Ticket Office closures.


Access Group members highlighted the negative impact Ticket Office Closures will have for Disabled train users and other people in the community.


The letter highlights:

  • The difficulties disabled people will have in planning, buying tickets and making journey

  • The proposed solutions are not consistent

  • It will be difficult to locate staff if you need support
