The two Stroud Theatre Festival gigs at the Ale House seemed to go well. They were called 'Philip and John's Medium-sized Nights Out' and were done jointly with Philip Douch.
Friday 29 Sept I read 'The Hero' and 'The Night Ape'. About 20 people attended.
Saturday 30 September I read 'Da' and a range of flash fiction - How to Improve Productivity, In Those Days, Islands, Boyfriends, Birth, Kate Adie is 69, A Hot Summer's Day, The First Time at Her Place. This gig was sold out - 25 people.
