Are you sitting Comfortably: a performance of my story

White Rabbit Productions are back with another of their fabulous Are you sitting comfortably? events. Giving writers the opportunity to submit their work, the two actors Bernadette Russell and compadre in crime Gareth Brierly read their own and selected stories based on a theme. This Saturday, the theme is Hero's and Villains (one of my favourites). 

The events are always great fun with a Mad Hatter-esque feel, as the company decorates the venue, wear costumes and feed the audience free cakes and sweets. There is music and visuals, and the actors give the reading of the stories themselves (certainly in my case!) a professional feel. As a writer, its a treat to sit back and have someone else interpret and present the story you've written. In my story, 'Beyond Fake,' the main protagonist is a big, hairy wrestler, which makes it hard for me to read convincingly.

I'd definitely recommend it as a great night out.
