Lovely to hear that The Fourth Dog, recorded by A Word In Your Ear as an audio play some time ago, has a new life as a stage play. Doing very well, sold out at the Fire Station in Oxford and touring to the Mill, Newbury, and to Chipping Norton. Fab news Zena Forster, well done! See here for info. And you can listen to the audio version (or download onto a device of your choice!) here.
All the recordings from Story Friday South are up on the website ready for your delectation. You can download them and listen to them in the bath, in the car, when you go running, when you go swimming – the world of stories is your oyster! Enjoy! Click here to go to the recordings.
Very excited about our line-up of stories for next Friday’s Story Friday South! We’ve got Mark Rutterford, Mark Hynes, Adrian Paul, Clare Reddaway, Julie Hayman, Sally Gander, Elaine Miles and Steve Tuffin, with a veritable smorgasbord of delights! We go skydiving, indulging in a spot of hanky panky in the garden, riding on a cart to an execution as well as defrosting a freezer (weirder than you’d think!) and enjoying some good belly laughs along the way. We’ve got the wonderful Tracy and Jason playing their blend of pop and jazz for us in the bar. So come and join us – it’s going to be a great evening! Friday 30th June, Burdall’s Yard, BA1 5NH. Doors open at 7.15, stories start at 8.00, £5 on the doo
