Stories from Journeys, first performed at Story Friday Journeys, 28th April 2017, Burdall’s Yard, Bath.
We had a packed out Story Friday for Journeys in April. The audience were gripped by a record number of stories. We had a couple of hilarious pieces from Story Friday regulars Stephanie Weston and Philip Douch, an original and funny tale from Rosalind Minett as she made us wonder about Life Before Chairs and a moving story which was inspired by her life, from newcomer Alissar Amali.
We were proud to collaborate with Engage, at the Theatre Royal Bath, for this Story Friday, and we welcomed writers and actors from the Engage programme to read stories for us – none of whom had written or performed for Story Fridays before. So Liz Hume read Debbie Beale’s trip to the seaside; Charlotte Turner-McMullen read Sarah Curwen’s story set in a medieval German village; Russell Hancock read John Reynolds’ musings on time as he bathed in the warm sun of Granada and Christopher Ryan treated us to hansom cabs and handbags in Andrew Campbell’s story All Change. We look forward to seeing more of all of them!
We loved having Gill Simmons back playing for us in the bar. Gill Simmons runs local drama company Brave Bold Drama. We also gave the audience a taster for their journeys experience with an extract from Sara Firman’s Blue Vikram in the programme.
