New Tellers – New Tales
Tuesday 11th June
There is no theme for this evening so you can choose any story you feel comfortable with. And remember, it doesn’t have to be “good”. If you enjoy telling it we will enjoy listening to it.
More experienced tellers are also welcome, but priority will be given to new tellers. Come with a story or just come and lend your ears to support new tellers – because tellers need listeners too!
CAFE OPENS 6.30PM, STORIES START AT 7.30 PM. FREE PARKING, DISABLED ACCESS.
TICKETS £5/£4 CONCESSIONS ON THE DOOR.

The Serpent King’s Daughter – an oral storytelling performance by The Guest House Storytellers
This collection of colourful teaching tales from ancient India – seductive, funny, tragic, philosophical, horrific – is contained within a framing story about King Suryakanta, a misogynist who falls in love with the dangerous and clever Princess Anangaraga, daughter of the Serpent King. Each story ends with a riddle that she has to solve. If she fails to solve even one, she has to marry him. If she solves them all, he becomes her slave for life.
