Stories from Cabaret, first performed at Story Friday Cabaret, 13th November 2015, Burdall’s Yard Bath
In November, Story Fridays once again teamed up with Bath Libraries to run a B&NES-wide short story competition. We chose the theme Cabaret. The two winning stories written by newcomers to Story Fridays were read at the event. After the stories, we had a screening of the 1972 musical Cabaret.
Here’s June Wentland from B&NES Libraries presenting certificates and prizes to the writers.
We had stories from our winning writers, Ruth Eversley and Hannah Persaud. We also had stories from regulars Stephanie Weston, Adrian Paul and Julie Green, and also from newcomer Lucy Langdon. The stories were funny (even hilarious at times), sad, moving, poignant and true. Julie Green wins a large and flamboyant Story Friday Glory Hat for the best title: ‘From Molar Extractions in Sarajevo to the Bridges of Iraq’.
