Dreamfired Storynights presents: Tim Ralphs performs From The Odd
Familiar tales are pulled from a bin bag, Orpheus’s lyre is broken, and the Devil bets souls on a game of scrabble. This is a compelling, weird and hilarious collection of stories that award winning young storyteller Tim Ralphs has found in skips, sheds, and amongst the stars.
His work draws on traditional story, the ever-changing cityscape of his home, myth, legend and the badger that lives at the bottom of his garden, with absurd imagery and some gore. Recommended for adults and children over 12.

Tickets: £7.00 (concessions £5.00, for under 18s and full-time students only). Tickets are sold on the door, for cash. Ticket price includes coffee and cake. You can reserve tickets in advance – by phone on 0789 1487375 or email [email protected]
