Stories from 2018, first performed at Story Friday 2018, 25th January, 2019 Burdall’s Yard, Bath.
2018 was quite a year. We marked it at Story Friday with stories inspired by events that happened during the year. We had a range of responses both in subject – football, sun probes – and in tone – from fairytales to a form of stand-up comedy. We selected only one story that dealt directly with the dreaded Brexit, and we hope you’ll find newcomer to Story Friday Matt Harris’s ‘The Present Want Out’ an original take on the subject! Stories from Elaine Miles, Mark Rutterford, Matt Harris, David Wood, Clare Reddaway and Stephanie Weston are available to listen to below.
As this event was topical, we thought we’d make it REALLY topical. We challenged writers to write a story responding to this week’s new. It was a tough deadline – but we had some corkers! We would like to thank the royal family for inspiring many a writer to put pen to paper.
We had two winners of the first Story Friday Challenge: Mark Rutterford and Philip Douch. Here are their stories:
