Mr Rook’s Speak Easy presents… Fool’s Gold

Thursday 16th April

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

30 years ago Steve and Francis were ‘The Spaghetti Brothers’ a clown and circus act. They even came to Frome to run a two week Circus School. You may have been there! Now they are back and they have given up the circus to become storytellers – but the clown remains to colour their storytelling with humor and wise foolishness..

Their show ‘Fool’s Gold’ which is an evening of funny and wise (well, they like to think so) stories and it’s coming to Frome.

“Fool’s Gold may be the name, but be assured that the content is undoubtedly 100% pure gold. Francis and Steve ushered in a mischievous atmosphere that warmed the heart and brought a smile to every face in the room. Their responsive, ever changing energy, audience interaction and relaxed and easy style of storytelling made an hour pass all too quickly.’

Swansea Storytelling Club

“Fool’s Gold: at last, storytelling meets the double act. Slicker than an oil spill & with a suitcase full of stories, Steve Killick & Francis Maxey bring a dollop of slapstick & a hint of the surreal to the world of the tradtional tale. An evening (treat) not to be missed.”
