Journeys paused

For the time being only, of course!

It is always so interesting to see how all our work in the front room changes and develops in the bare light of performance – or, in fact, the calm and friendly light of our performances at the Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh last weekend:  It was great to watch the flute playing bear wander through the tables of the crowd and hear an appreciative laugh for Bob’s frankly macabre joke rather than the guesswork of ’10 second pause for applause here’ which we hope for as we rehearse!  It has come out really well, and we got some great  feedback.  Now I have a job to do to rustle up some more audiences for it!

They said:

‘It was fantastic, one of the best shows I’ve seen in here in a long time!’

‘Good to hear stories where the subject of Death, especially a peaceful death after a life well lived is not shied away from.  Thank you’

‘Amazing!  You are all wonderful,  A really polished professional show, the best thing I have seen for ages! Music worked so well to enhance the stories.’

‘Love the variety of stories – folk tales, local history, poetry as well as a sprinkling of music and song.  Very entertaining, well performed’

‘I loved it, as a tourist it was great fun, I had a lovely evening, Great stories and great humour’

‘Well done, everything was great.  I laughed, I was horrified.. completely taken by every story’
