THE STORM BRIDE: A Fairy Tale For A Fragile Planet - No.28, Belper, February 25th

HI, just announcing my first storytelling show of the New Year, which is THE STORM BRIDE: A Fairy Tale For A Fragile Planet, which I'll be presenting at my regular venue of the No.28 community centre in Belper at 7.30pm on Saturday 25th of February. No.28 is in Belper Market Square, Derbyshire DE56 1FZ and tickets can be booked here, at Brown Paper Tickets...

Here's a bit more detail....

Storyteller & playwright Marty Ross returns to his regular venue at No.28 in Belper with a dramatic tale touching on the most important and dramatic relationship of our times: our relationship with the planet we live on.

As in previous shows, the Scottish dramatist draws on traditions of Celtic myth and legend, but in a very contemporary fashion. One of the world's richest men has discovered a new source of cheap energy in the Scottish highlands and has fracked his way right down to it, but only to unleash an environmental catastrophe. And more ancient supernatural forces in the valley demand payment in kind for the damage he has done, in a disturbingly modern version of ancient tales of fairy abduction.

A fairy tale, a serious drama and a statement about the world we live in, this is a "Winter's Tale" with much to offer for all who enjoy theatrical storytelling at its most vivid... truly a fairy tale for the Trump era.
