Top poet Jim MacCool is a regular visitor to Buxton Fringe, bringing new work and previewing new shows.

The Performance Poetry Society poet and lyricist will be at the Green Man Gallery, Buxton on Wednesday, July 6, with his new presentation.

Rosalita - The Tale of Rosa Luxemburg is the story of Marxism-Leninism’s martyr and saint.

A tale told in verse, Rosalita features contemporary Berlin music hall songs with fresh, hard-hitting words by Jim.

This year is a real family affair with Molly and Fionnuala MacCool giving voice to the raucous Music Hall songs that intersperse this gripping and grisly tale which has adult themes of sex and violence.

David Harrod is musical director and accompanist.

Entry is free to this presentationat the Green Man Gallery which starts at 1pm.

Rosalita tours in October to promote National Poetry Month.
