Once upon a time there were three sisters, and three brothers, and a mortal king, and a tree of gold, a fruit of life, a mountain of glass, a witch in the woods with a knife, and a daughter, a slaughter and a sacrifice, a shared myth, a curse, a tragic truth, another world beyond a wall, the devil himself, and other wonders...

Fall into the surreal, enchanting and hallucinatory world of three wonder tales told by Sarah Liisa Wilkinson. We promise to return you in one piece... unless you choose to stay.

CONTENT WARNING: this performance may contain descriptions of sex, violence, threat, and death, contextualised within a paradigm of mythic narrative, archetype and metaphor.


Half-English and half-Finnish, storyteller Sarah Lisa Wilkinson is one of the brightest new talents to emerge in British storytelling. She has trained as a performer with Philippe Gaulier, and as a storyteller with Nell Phoenix and Ben Haggarty. She has told stories to audiences in clubs, pubs, festivals, churches, front rooms and all-night sleepovers. She is a member of The Embers Collective.
