The event has passed.

Funny, dark and fantastical storytelling with live cello soundscape inspires us to be brave enough to be true to ourselves.

Fresh from a smashing run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, critically acclaimed storyteller Niall Moorjani reimagines the folk classic Thomas the Rhymer in sixty minutes of strangeness, sexy fairies and swearing.

Set to a live original cello accompaniment from Diana Redgrave, this is storytelling at its best.

An original piece which explores queerness, Scottish race and gender identities through a medieval-inspired landscape.

★★★★★ “a spellbinding tale of search and discovery” – Lost in Theatreland
★★★★★ ”seamlessly blends the threads of racial identity, queerness and folklore to create a fantastical and poignant picture of modern Scotland” – The Skinny
★★★★ “Moorjani is an enchanting storyteller who will take you on an emotional journey, able to switch between characters with the simplest of physical differences” – Broadway World
★★★★ Broadway Baby
★★★★ Fringe Biscuit
★★★★ “Storytelling genius” – The Scotsman
