The Girl In The Dog by Jan Blake

Fairytales for Grown-Ups

Thu 26 January 2023 // 19:30

Tickets: £12

A stranger walks into town,
A forbidden chamber is filled with hair,
A girl seeks refuge in the skin of a dog…

Superlative storyteller, Jan Blake, draws us into the hot, enchanted realm of Caribbean and African fairytale – where rules get bent, taboos are broken, people go astray, and family bonds are tightly tied.

Expect shapeshifting, dark encounters and surreal enchantments, as magic is done and undone to restore balance in a dynamic world of wonder.
