Roots on Friday 3rd - Friday 17th January 2020

Sitting on a shelf in the British Library is an unassuming red book. “The Aarne index” has categorised thousands of folktales, offering a glimpse into the imaginations of pre-industrialised people. 1927’s roots is a medley of these rarely told stories.

'Music, animation, narration, performance all comes together to forge a unique theatrical experience' - Post & Courier, Charleston
'Roots will ground you in amazement and delight' - Charleston City Paper
