FAIRYTALES FOR GROWN-UPS – UNCAGED
PERFORMANCE STORYTELLING BY MICHAEL HARVEY
A wild man in a cage is holding the exact thing you’ve been looking for, and you don’t have the key…
In a charm-your-socks-off performance, Michael Harvey brings us a story of uncaged wonder and transformation, complete with cross-dressing, a huge hairy man, attempted seduction, and a plot that twists and turns.
This story comes from a place where everyday life and the fantastic collide – somewhere simultaneously earthy, ethereal and real. Michael unearths a Breton version of a famous Grimms fairytale which will blow your mind. Hang on to your hats – this one’s a corker!
