Mr Rook’s Speak Easy presents… Cath Little: Castle Arianrhod

Thursday 20th November

Doors at 7pm // Performance from 7:30pm

Castle Arianrhod is a re-imagining of an ancient Welsh myth, a retelling of one of the stories from the Mabinogion. It tells the story of the harm that comes into the world when sister and brother fight. It is a story full of magic and enchantment. Cath Little brings the strange mythic images to life with her words and her song and the music of her lyre.

Where is Castle Arianrhod? It is under the waters of Caernarvon Bay, it is in the spinning circle of the stars above and it is in this gift of a story.

About Mr Rook’s….

Mr Rook’s Speak Easy is a new storytelling performance club for Frome, aiming to showcase local performers as well as host tellers from around the UK.

Although vibrant traditions survived in other parts of the British Isles, oral storytelling nearly in England during the last century but was revived in the 1980s. Since then it has been enjoying the same surge in popularity as other spoken-word art forms, and continues to thrive in contemporary performance spaces.
