Here are some events that I've got coming up. Plays, short story events, workshops - lots of things to see and to do. Book a ticket or contact me to make a reservation.
STORY FRIDAY - 28TH FEBRUARY
Live short stories, freshly written, wonderfully performed, at Burdall's Yard in Bath. Our next Story Friday LEAP! is on 28th February at Burdall's Yard in Bath. Stories start at 8pm, doors open at 7.15, tickets are £5 on the door. If you'd like to submit, or want to find out about previous or future Story Fridays, there's more info here: A Word In Your Ear
STORIES AROUND THE FIRE - 23RD JANUARY
For this new event at the lovely Packhorse Inn in Southstoke, I will be reading stories specially selected for this atmospheric venue, with a couple of fellow writers. Snuggle up around the fire with a glass of wine or a mug of hot chocolate and enjoy a selection of entertaining stories. We will be upstairs at the Packhorse at 7.30, on Thursday 23rd January. This is a FREE event.
I run creative writing workshops for small groups of writers at all levels of experience, in my house in central Bath. The workshops are warm, friendly and inspiring. All workshops cost £10.00, and run from 10.00-1.00pm on Saturday mornings.
STORY SATURDAY - 7TH MARCH
I run Story Saturday events at Clifton Library in Bristol in association with Foccal, Friends of Clifton Library. For Story Saturdays I invite a couple of fellow writers to join me at the Library to read some of our favourite stories. The next Story Saturday will be on 7th March. More details soon.
I was delighted to be part of the inaugural Clifton Lit Fest, running workshop and organising a screening. The Festival was a fantastic event, which I hope will become an annual fixture.
Little Potatoes, a powerful, bittersweet comedy-drama set in China about marriage, mothers and family-planning.
After a successful run at the Old Red Lion in Islington, Little Potatoes toured this summer with the Nomad Festival. It was in the New Forest, Cheltenham and at the Buxton Festivals. More info here.
Kilter Theatre and A Word In Your Ear joined forces in summer 2018
to create a promenade collection of site-responsive stories at Prior Park. Small audiences set off through woods & fields across our spectacular skyline to discover each short story uniquely set in the World Heritage Landscape that inspired it. We are planning future Foraged Fictions in other locations - please get in touch if you know of a site which might be suitable.
A play about pilgrimage for Juno Theatre's production Salisbury Tales, written to celebrate the 500th anniversary of St Thomas' Church. First outing was in September at St Thomas' Church, Salisbury. Look out for future dates for this production.
I have a number of plays and events in development such as a full length version of Sandwiches; a monologue which will be filmed in the summer; new play set in a rundown seaside town; and a sound installation project. Visit the website for updates!
