Next Monday (May 14th) Rattle Tales makes it Brighton Fringe Festival debut. God knows how we managed to come up with the line-up; absolutely every story we were sent this time was of an incredibly high standard. There are ten core members of Rattle Tales and everyone has an equal say, so the selection meeting was quite heated with wildly differing opinions on who should go through. There was also a clash of subjects and a few stories were rejected simply for being to similar to others, some were rejected because the author had quested at Rattle Tales before and we thought that this time we’d let others have a chance. It was really really difficult. I hope that all the writers who submitted will do so again because I would happily put any of them through for future events. 

As well as the six full-length stories, we’ve managed to squeeze a couple of bonus flash fiction spots in to round off each half of the proceedings. I will be reading Elephant which is included in the National Flash Fiction Day Anthology Jawbreakers.

The full list is:

Joe Joyce – Ganglion

Amanda Welby-Everard – The Good Schoo

Linda Baker – The Pear Tree

Charlotte Feld – The Potential Energy of an Object (flash piece)

Ryan Millar – Waking the Bear

Alice Cuninghame – All Fall Down

Susanna Quinn – How to Make Money and Manipulate People

Erinna Mettler – Elephant (flash piece)

Tickets for the show are limited, so get them in advance online if you want to be sure of getting in. We cannot guarantee that we will have tickets left to sell on the door. Buy them from here.

You will also be able to buy Rattle Tales first anthology, packed with 21 fabulous stories from our previous shows. It’s new and you need one!

See you at the Caroline of Brunswick, at 8.15 on the 14th May.
