  • Story Jam: Reel and Unravel - Stories of the Avocet Kingdom & Suadade



    Hosted by Lucy Lill and Alys Torrance, south London’s popular longstanding storytelling night takes up residence with the Albany across two venues.

     



    Top tellers and songsters get together to sing stories and tell songs in an autumn season of shanties and sagas, tall tales and tunes. We’ve got a cello, a choir, one man and his uke and lots more. With a different line-up of tellers each month, we bring tales from every corner of the world to right here on our doorstep.

     

    November features two superb tales, expertly told, plus Jason Buck with an excerpt of The Little Beggar.

     

    Stories of the Avocet Kingdom

    Wordsmith Joe Fraser and songwriter Chloe Bezer mix up songs, stories and a cello, to wander through the thorny concepts of Island, Invasion and Individuality. 

     

    ‘Takes equal parts wit, weirdness and intelligence and whips them up into a dark treat.’ Metro

     

     

    Suadade

     ‘There’s no English word for it … it’s a sort of longing, a mourning for somewhere, sometime, someone that was once everything but can never be again.’

     

    Blending Iberian folklore with a shocking slice of Portuguese history, internationally-acclaimed writer and storyteller John Edgar brings his unique, lively, physical and ‘wonderfully feral’ style to a show in which everyone doesn’t always live happily ever after and where the prince finally gets his princess but at a terrible cost.
