Brighton Storytellers present:
The Rising Cost of Cabbage and other tales with special guest Alys Torrance
Monday 26th September, 7:30pm
The summer is drawing to a close and the new season of storytelling is upon us! For our first event, we are thrilled to be telling tales at the fantastic ONCA Gallery. Brighton Storytellers are very excited to present the brilliant Alys Torrance as our feature teller for our first performance of the new season!
‘The world is full of slugs and snails and snakes, all gobbling and biting and eating your darlings up. Store your children somewhere safe and high. Don’t ever let them go.’
So you fling your child into a strong tower.
Ah, but a tower isn’t for living in, it’s for looking out.
Here are five tales; a woman rockets out of her turret and straight through a mountain, a city sleeps while it burns, a king moors his boat to a fortress in the ocean, a long held pebble is finally cast away and Rapunzel grows like a weed, pulled up, cut back, thrown away and twice as vigorous as before. All tales told wherever sailors come ashore and towers rise up.
What has any of this to do with the cost of cabbage? Come and you’ll see. Welcome to a very human tale of lust, loneliness and groceries.
