Suki Silvertongue: Bedtime Stories for Grown Ups


01:00-02:00 First Word
Sunday 19 June

Lusciously lyrical and sublimely subversive, Suki Silvertongue straddles the worlds of poetry and storytelling, serving up deliciously decadent versions of classic tales as you’ve never heard them before. Journey with Suki into a late night fantasy realm filled with kickass heroines, wondrous creatures, poetic justice and unexpected twists that is as timeless as it is bang up to date. Where traditional tales meet contemporary themes to dance the tango with a rose between gritted teeth. With an a la carte menu featuring such tantalising treats as ‘Rapunzel’s Lady Garden of Love’, ‘Titania’s Bottom’ and ‘Lady Victoria Frankenstein’, you’ll be spoilt for choice and hungry for more!

“What a performance! Suki Silvertongue is beguiling, engaging, entertaining, intelligent, witty, funny and very, very saucy. Her performance is spoken word art for grown-ups, and you are guaranteed to laugh and laugh and laugh”
Geoff Dixon, The Burston Crown
