RichardWant to organise a performance?

  • a full theatre programme
  • a performance for a school
    (watch me performing in school)
    (read a teacher's report)
  • entertainment for a business event
  • or just a couple of stories to complement a social occasion.
Or perhaps you are not yet certain what exactly you really need for the occasion you are planning.

Your needs are always specific to your stage and audience. Fortunately, storytelling is the ultimate flexible artform and a performance can always be created to give you what you require.

A solo Tellatale evening storytelling performance will typically consist of eight to ten tales, and last, with interval, around two hours. The first half largely comprises the comic tales, the second the deeper.

The choice of tales for any programme depends on your wishes, the tales I have recently added to my repertoire, as well as old favourites I wish to tell again. With several hundred tales in my backlist, there are always plenty to choose from.

If you want to add music

can be arranged.

Whatever your particular requirements are, I can offer a performance tailored to suit them at an appropriate price.
