Join us for another night of wild and wicked words!Marion Leeper brings her story Peronik, of the 'simpleton', who can’t hold two ideas in his head at the same time. He faces a forest of terrors and enticements, roaring lions and flaming spears. Can he reach the giant’s castle where so many knights have failed? And can the audience help him choose the right path?

Join us for another night of wild and wicked words!

Marion Leeper grew up in a family of storytellers and her head is still rattling with more stories than she can ever quite count, from 16th century feminist romance to the dark legends of the Fens. She has appeared at festivals including Beyond the Border, Festival at the Edge, Whittlesey Straw Bear Festival and the World Storytelling Café Festival in Marrakech. The story of Peronik features in her forthcoming show, a companion piece to her mix of folktale and family history, The Kitchen Cat.

With the amazing music of the Hatstand Band!
