Funny, dark and fantastical storytelling with live cello soundscape inspires us to be brave enough to be true to ourselves.

Fresh from a smashing run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, critically acclaimed storyteller Niall Moorjani reimagines the folk classic Thomas the Rhymer in sixty minutes of strangeness, sexy fairies and swearing.

Set to a live original cello accompaniment from Diana Redgrave, this is storytelling at its best.

An original piece which explores queerness, Scottish race and gender identities through a medieval-inspired landscape.
