Storytelling Peformances for Adults

 

Magical, mesmerising and often with a dark twist to the tale these performances have been crafted with an adult audience in mind. Often in collaboration  with musicians from a range of backgrounds and sometimes involving an element of mask.

These shows are adaptable feasts of words, sounds and visuals. They sit comfortably in book shops, museums, libraries as well as more traditional performance spaces and festivals.
In addition to the full length shows I also tell collections of tales from my repertoire to adult audiences and can create something special for your party or event. All work is suitable for ages 14+.

—————————————-

There are a range of  storytelling performances for adults which you can view and book below, but please do get in touch with your particular requirements, or just to say hello!

 

Storytelling performances for adult audiences available in 2018

Mr Fox's Blue Bottle

Who will be bold?

Who will play our parlour game?

Which ending will you choose?

Make your way through the shadowy paths of old folk tales to the gates of Bluebeard’s Castle.

Storytelling with a difference using masks and audience interaction to choose the story’s ending.

With live music by multi-instrumentalist Ann Jones.

“Pyn gives this wonderfully sinister story a delicious twist” Lucy Lill, Story Jam – London

“I was on the edge of my seat! Reminded me of Angela Carter. Loved the music too” Audience Member, Waterstones – Birmingham

 

The Devil With The Three Golden Hairs

 

A compelling tale of true love, heroic deeds and hilarious characters.  

A boy is born with luck on his side. A rich man rides into the forest with evil intent. 

The story unfolds as their paths cross again and again and again … 

 This performance fuses performance storytelling with an emotive Handpan soundtrack from Marc Reck.

 

An evocative and immensely moving piece of entertainment – great characterisation and humour” Maddy Kerr, Heartbreak Productions

 

“Loved the multi character performance, the accents and beautiful accompaniment with atmospheric music” Audience Member, The Stagey Fox -Leamington Spa

Rich Mix Tales

 

Lively, dramatic, interactive and able to fit into any space or location. 

A rich mix of international folk tales, wonder tales, myths and legends. 

These storytelling performances are drawn from my repertoire and aimed at an adult audience.

What a wonderful way to spend a winter evening!! I was right there!”
