Stories from Chemistry, first performed at Story Friday Chemistry, 8th November, Burdall’s Yard, Bath.
We were back at Burdall’s Yard in November, for stories on the theme of Chemistry. We had explosive stories from fabulous writers Nicolas Ridley, Philip Douch, Alison Clink, Christopher Moore, Georgia Stride, Clare Reddaway and Stephanie Weston. Tales of love and labs, of poisoners, moon gazers and lust around the swimming pool. Have a listen to the stories below, and read Georgia’s piece of flash fiction which we printed in the programme.
