FRIDAY 22nd NOVEMBER, Doors open 7pm, stories start at 7.30
Venue: Burdall’s Yard, 7A Anglo Terrace, Bath BA1 5NH
Six freshly minted stories on the theme Brief Encounter AND a movie! All for £4.00. Tickets on the door.
Come and listen to some stories to surprise and delight, read by writer-performers in a warm friendly cabaret atmosphere. This Story Friday is a bit different from our usual events, just to keep you on your toes! The vaults of our lovely venue Burdall’s Yard reminded us of railway arches, and from there it was but a hop, skip and a jump to the thwarted lovers in the 1946 black and white classic Brief Encounter. We asked our writers to come up with stories inspired by the movie – and they’ve done just that! Expect love, loss and passion as our writers explore their own brief encounters… And then! As if that’s not enough! There’ll be a screening of the film, and we can all watch Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson being perfectly, perfectly in love in what those cynics at Time Out voted ‘The Most Romantic Film of All Time’.
Writer-performers are Elaine Miles, Stephanie Weston, Clare Reddaway and Doc Watson with actors Olly Langdon and Caroline Garland reading stories by Catherine Strong and Geoffrey Heptonstall.
We’ll be dressing up a la 1940s Brief Encounter – if you’d like to dress up to please do – optional of course!
What our audience thinks:
‘Enthralling’ ‘Great stories, great venue’ ‘Quaint and quirky’ ‘Fascinating’ ‘Great way to spend Friday evenings’ ‘I’ll certainly come again!’
