Story Friday LEAP! 

Stories from Story Friday:  LEAP!

Stories from LEAP!, first performed at Story Friday LEAP!, 28th February 2020, Burdall’s Yard, Bath.

In honour of 2020’s status as a leap year, and because Story Friday was on the 28th, the day before leap day, we chose the theme leap for February.  We had loads of wonderful submissions featuring different versions of leaping – leaps of imagination, of faith, leaps into the dark, brave leaps, physical leaps, leaping leopards, leaps in time.  We had eight stories – seven on stage, one in the programme.  We chose lots of writers new to Story Friday, as well as some regulars.  We heard from Alison Clink, Steve Walters, Christine Roberts, Clare Reddaway, Lissa Carter, Mark Rutterford and David Mathews.  We had a story from Rosemary Johnson in the programme.
