What does short listing mean?
Every regional organiser has read everything, and chosen a long list that they would have performed at their site if there were enough time.
Sadly that isn’t going to be possible, we’d need twice as long, so they will be picking their final performance list (where they haven’t already) based on timing and not having stories that are too similar in tone; there were quite a few thematic things going on, particularly with wolves, and despite all the warnings not to, death.
We are aiming to announce the final line up on 1st December.
