John Lennon‘s 1964 book In His Own Write is to be adapted for the stage.

A production of the book – which consists of stories, scenes and poems – will debut at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe festival.

The project has received the full support and cooperation of Yoko Ono.


Jonathan Glew of Baldynoggin Productions, who is behind the production, told Examiner: “I’m happy to say that they (and Yoko) have been very gracious in accommodating all of my requests with regards to the production.”

The play will include rare footage of Lennon. “Most recently I was granted permission to use some little seen footage of John reciting a piece from the book for inclusion in our production. I have, of course, invited Yoko to come and see the show during its 22-show run in Edinburgh alongside other members of the Lennon estate, Paul and Ringo and John’s contemporaries.”

The hour-long production runs daily at the Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh, from Saturday, August 8 to Sunday, August 30. You can find more details by clicking here.

Entry is free as part of the PBH Free Fringe.
