Stroud Short Stories are back


The first live Stroud Short Stories event for two years will go ahead on Sunday, November 7th at the Cotswold Playhouse.

The last live show was in November 2019, recent events being on YouTube only because of the pandemic.

SSS organiser/editor John Holland, with his co-judge Debbie Young has chosen ten stories to be read by their authors, all of whom are from Gloucestershire.

John explained: “It’s all very well being on YouTube and having people all over the world listening to Stroud Short stories, but everyone has missed the buzz of the live event.”

“And we have some great stories this time – everything from sheep farming in New Zealand to a shopping centre on the rampage and the aftermath of a pagan ritual! All very SSS.”

Tickets, priced at £9, are available from The Cotswold Playhouse website – https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/cotswoldplayhouse/t-ogjmey

The last 14 live events all sold out so best not to delay.

The ten brilliant stories, selected from a total of 77 submissions by Gloucestershire authors, are by Nick Adams, Ali Bacon, Georgia Boon, Robin Booth, Hannah Glickstein, Jasmin Izagaren, Claire Jaggard, Rebecca Klassen, Pauline Masurel and Melanie White.

Stroud Short Stories ‘WILD!’ Sunday, November 7th at 7.30pm (doors 7.00) Cotswold Playhouse, Parliament Street, Stroud, GL1 5LW.
