Story Friday on… Friday….was fab! A lovely, warm, friendly audience listened with rapt attention to our writer-performers. Philip Douch’s story about child superheroes made everyone laugh, as did Lisa Fryer’s vengeance-when-dressed-up-as-Olympic-mascot. Crysse Morrison’s story about a teenager visiting a blind man in a care home was very touching, and Christine Roberts’ story about a cleaner was angry and passionate. Olly Langdon read Pauline Masurel’s great story about a couple of young men racing to prove themselves. I read a story about a woman obsessed with Venus, the planet not the tennis player. Olly’s 19th century Union Jack flag made a smashing backdrop, and Shehana Gomez was startled but pleased to win the Not The Olympics mari-gold garland-medal. A good time was had by all!
We’re looking forward to the next one! The Fall is on 21st September, open for submissions now.
