‘A fresh dose of magic that you need in your life.
Everything Theatre

Fairy tale-teller extraordinaire, Ben Haggarty, brings us a night of old skool storytelling! This mash-up of Scots tinker and Romanian gypsy fairy tales, comes complete with boys becoming men; men becoming women; the darkest of arts; inescapable destiny, and a baby sister who isn’t quite what anyone expected…

These are some of the first fairy tales Ben Haggarty ever told. Tough, beautiful and filled with magic, they’ll take you about as high as you can go….to about as low as you can go….and make way for something a bit more difficult than ‘happy ever after.’
