When we first had the idea for Liberty Tales, (chance meeting at Canada Water Station, it’s a long story) we thought we would be celebrating 800 years of Magna Carta, with, perhaps some historical fiction, and some rousing songs
Well, no, not exactly.
That’s the fun of an open call, you get what you get; and what we got in response to the call out for stories about Liberty, was mostly about living outside the system, and self-expression and choice; and the songs have turned out to be about making things work by not judging others, and working together to get the bright fair future, although they fit surprisingly well with the stories – you’d almost think we planned it!
So we’ve called in some favours to vary the flavour, and now have a rather bleak piece of fantasy, and a story about very much being IN the system…
Our line up of stories are from:
Liam Hogan The King’s Computer
Carolyn Eden (aka Carrie Cohen, when she reads for us) Promotional Samples of London Town
Jim Cogan Lag
Helen Morris Poppies (read by Carrie Cohen)
Nick Rawlinson Into the Blue (read by Stuart Crossman)
Sarah Evans Bothered (read by Carrie Cohen)
Owen Townend Stopped by a Busker (read by Stuart Crossman)
Thanks to our friends at Better Libraries for hosting us!
