BWW Review: MY NAME IS ASHER LEV Speaks to our Hearts and our Arts at Eternity Playhouse
by Brodie Paparella - May 16, 2016

If there is anything an audience can relate to in contemporary theatre, it is the concept of struggling to forge ahead with one's own individual passions whilst navigating the traditions of the past and the expectations of those who, having grown up in more desperate times, had only such traditions to survive by. Where parents fought to give their children a better life, but don't know how to handle it when they start to take such opportunities. My Name is Asher Lev turns up the dial hard on this theme by setting such conflict in the home of an observant Torah Jewish family, wherein the titular character is awakened with a prodigal gift for art. In his father's mind, this gift is from the devil. So Asher's narrative plays out as the ultimate declaration of independence from family, from community, but not perhaps from faith. (more...)

Dave Eastman Releases Second Novel, SILVER SOLDIERS
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2016

Join a group of retired Special Forces veterans as they take on a sinister government conspiracy to ensure that Great Britain remains free. Confronted by brainwashed policemen, a psychotic detective and an evil mastermind named Margaret Thatcher (no relation,) these Silver Soldiers must do everything in their power to save the country they love. Aspiring independent author Dave Eastman has released his second novel, Silver Soldiers, a science fiction thriller set in a dystopian near future Great Britain. Following the success of his debut novel in 2015, Realmborn, which was well received both on the Amazon marketplace and on Goodreads.com, Silver Soldiers aspires to be an enjoyable read for all. Reviewers have so far said, 'Silver Soldiers is a cracking read and extremely good fun...action, humour, suspense, anguish, and an incredibly enjoyable ensemble of characters' and 'A thrilling and fast paced novel that I did not want to put down!' Silver Soldiers tells the story of Campbell Ellis, a retired Special Forces veteran, who finds himself thrust into the battles against a mind-control conspiracy being led by the head of the National Police Service. Campbell's grandson has unwittingly joined the fight and Campbell must recruit his former comrades to help keep the young man alive. Now available on Amazon Silver Soldiers is described by its author as 'nothing that will change your life or make you a better person or reveal The Mysteries of the universe to you, but it will keep you very entertained for a few hours.' Eastman, a resident of the Isle of Wight, features the island in this novel, as well as the city that is his first love, London. A former conference and events manager, he now devotes his time to writing (his third novel, a science fiction action film in book format, is due out soon), raising his two sons and playing his guitar for anyone who will listen.
