Trickster + Q&A
January 14 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm£4.5 – £9
15th July 1910: A teenage boy walks out of school for the last time. Classmates, teachers, and doctors have already fallen foul of his trickery. Ahead are fun, fortune and a hundred more serious ruses to try. Little does he know he’ll soon be the most wanted man in Britain. Delightful and dangerous, hungry for life and never to be trusted, meet John Henry Williams.
With deviously disguised global trickster tales and real-life story, Dominic Kelly embarks on an audacious tale of trickery and deceit; a tale where truth and hearsay, history, folktale and myth flicker like shadows in sunshine. Come journey on a trickster’s side of the road…
‘Trickster’ has been performed in over 50 venues across the UK & Europe since 2012. In this special online performance, Dominic will give a short talk afterwards about the show, and Trickster figures in traditional and real-life story, followed by a brief Q&A session. The Q&A will be chaired, and questions will be curated by MC Adam Sargant.
