Story on stage

I’m pleased to announce that one of my short stories is to be performed on stage at a special charity event in London later this month. “The Interaction”, which was commissioned by the A Thousand Word Photos project, is to be read by an actor as part of two nights of storytelling and photography at the Arcola Theatre, Dalston, on February 19th and 20th.

A Thousand Word Photos is a creative project in which photographers and writers collaborate to create original fiction. The stories – each of which must be exactly 1000 words long – are shared with Interact Stroke Support, a charity that engages actors to read to patients who are recovering from strokes. Profits from the two-night event will be donated to the charity. On each evening, six stories will be read by actors against the backdrops of the images which inspired them.

Those whose work will be featured are: (Photographers) Chloe Dewe Matthews, Kate Stanworth, Phil Fisk, Tim Smyth, Dan Sully, Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, Morteza Nikoubazl, Lyle Hart, Phil Sharp, and Marika Kochiashvili; (Writers) Toby Litt, James Young, Nicci Cloke, Martyn Bedford, Max Sydney Smith, Phil Whitaker, Amanda Huggins, Helen Bridgett & Julian Edge, Will White, Kate Hardie, and Jasmine Ward. My story, inspired by this photograph (above) by Chloe Dewe Matthews, can be read here.
