James Richardson - The Curiouser Man

Would you like to trade your curiosity to hear a well-worn, tinkered-with tale?
The Curiouser Man has been gathering curios from neither here nor there, whilst on the long road that lies between this and that: each one is a keepsake wrapped in a tale that speaks to him of something that is true.

At its heart this show celebrates the art of oral storytelling found in the Travelling community, where news was traditionally passed between places and people. Such tidings would fuse the factual with the far-fetched, casting a compelling light on the lesser-known world.
Conjured up from performer James Richardson’s memory of the old, horse-drawn ‘rag-and-bone’ man passing down his childhood street, and from his family’s Romany and Traveller history, The Curiouser Man is comically quirky and beguiling storytelling performance that re-imagines traditional folk-stories, with a flair for theatricality and illusion.

Suitable for 12+
Running time: 90mins + interval.
