FAIRYTALES FOR GROWN-UPS: The Balance of Things...or How to Settle a Debt with a Chicken
Performance Storytelling by Michael Harvey (Suitable for adults 14+)
Venture into the vibrant and liminal world of Breton fairytales, and a landscape filled with encounters with beauties, beasts, strange companions, bizarre marriages, and ruthless atonement.
In a charm-your-socks-off performance, Michael Harvey draws on the collections of François-Marie Luzel, to recast and retell these grown up tales of wonder with a disarmingly light touch.
These stories come from a place where everyday life and the fantastic collide – somewhere simultaneously earthy, ethereal and real…with a decidedly comedic twist.
