Feast

Stories from Feast, first performed at Story Friday Feast, 30th November 2018, Burdall’s Yard, Bath.

We had a lip-smackingly delicious line-up of stories for Story Friday Feast at Burdall’s for our last Story Friday of 2018.

We welcomed Story Friday regulars Philip Douch, Elaine Miles and Doc Watson;  Nicolas Ridley and Debbie Beale have had at least one outing on the Story Friday stage,  and we were very pleased to hear writers new to Story Friday, Ali Bacon, Tony Kirwood and Ed Broom.  Ed came all the way from Ipswich, and Tony came down on the London train – we’re thrilled to hear how far Story Friday’s fame has travelled!  We also had a delightful amuse bouche by Jenny Woodhouse in the programme for the audience to read in the interval – when they weren’t grappling with the not-terribly-fiendish quiz! (Congrats to the winners, hope you enjoyed your easy peeler clementines!)

We’ve got monsters and saints, sins and indulgences, cafes, restaurants, more than one wedding…. and a perfectly ripe peach.   So a cornucopia of writerly delights awaits you if you’d care to listen again.  If you have a listen and like what you hear please spread the word – and you can always leave a comment if you’d like to!

*NB Philip has a beard. Also, he was reading from a grey file. Not that we are making any comment about that. Not at all…
