October 8th – Storytelling for Adults – all welcome

The GuestHouse Storytellers present “1001 NIGHTS”,

directed by Jamie Crawford and performed by The GuestHouse Storytellers

A woman, threatened with death by a despotic king saves her life by telling stories to educate him – stories that illustrate many of the injustices of society and the challenges faced by her fellow women and by the poor and others despised or oppressed by those in power. Love, humour, and adventure contrast with greed, lust, cruelty, and disloyalty in this selection of tales from this epic collection.

There will be an exhibition of prints for sale by Brighton artist Bryony Devitt in the café, and Persian food will be available from 6.30pm. See below for how to book.

Age 12+

7.30 to 9.30pm at the Hillcrest Centre, Bay Vue Rd, Newhaven BN9 9LH.

November 12th – Storytelling for Adults – all welcome

The GuestHouse Storytellers present professional storyteller Dominic Kelly with “The Big Blind”

A boy stands on a lake shore. Behind him is all he’s ever known. Ahead: a chance for love but a much higher chance of death.
He’s had a happy life, and a sheltered one. But his father gambled away that life, the debt cannot be paid in money and it won’t be his father who pays. Childhood is over…

Dominic Kelly brings to life an ancient full-bloodied fairy tale for modern audiences; weaving together versions from Ireland and India, Norway, Scotland and Russia into a new telling that speaks to the crises of our time. By turns gripping, funny, atmospheric, playful & powerful, it explores the consequences for the young when older generations fail to make adult decisions.

7.30 to 9.30pm at the Hillcrest Centre, Bay Vue Rd, Newhaven BN9 9LH. £9/£7 concessions on the door on the night.
