“Storyteller is a master class of oral tradition and storytelling...It's a sublime and expert performance, like a TED Talk given by one of the Brothers Grimm.” - British Theatre Guide ★★★★
When people told themselves their past with stories, explained their present with stories, foretold their future with stories, the best place by the fire was kept for the Storyteller. Award-winning storyteller Brice Stratford takes you on a blistering, unexpected, unpredictable tour of the folk tales, myths and legends of Albion and Brutus of Troy. In doing so he unravels the importance of stories, the development of stories, and the place they still hold in our culture today. Alongside an ever-shifting repertoire of folk tales and twisted fairy stories, Brice Stratford provokes a discussion of and about these stories, whilst always allowing the narratives to speak for themselves. He unlocks new perspectives and new interpretations of familiar tales and old myths, and discovers fresh some of the murkiest old fragments of London lore.
