The Ultimate Selection in SUFFOLK
We had a lovely time at Barons Court saying goodbye to the London version of the show – now for Suffolk to get its last chance. The Suffolk show will be at the Quay Theatre Bar on Friday 24th June and, as it’s only a few days after his birthday, Robert will bring cake.
Along with the old favourites from Teaching Gods there'll be a completely new comic tale, "The Adventures of Shermes Hollocks" written especially for the evening.
ABSOLUTELY THE LAST CHANCE TO CATCH THIS AWARD-WINNING MATERIAL!

Robert Crighton: STORYTELLER
Written and Performed by Robert Crighton – plus Special Guests
“Whatever you do, don’t think about orange penguins!”
Multi-Awarding Winning Storyteller Robert Crighton is returning to his roots with a new collection of stories for 2011. Featuring his trademark wit and dark humour, Storyteller will draw you into unusual worlds and introduce you to people you’d not normally meet.
This first collection is called The Natural History of Trolls, three stories covering a hundred and fifty years of history, two Queens and their subjects in the fairy kingdom. Midst this epic timeline is the story of an ordinary commute gone wrong, when a troll-like tramp in an Underground carriage turns out to REALLY be a Troll.
Funny, thoughtful and with occasional attempts at wisdom, let Robert Crighton and his team of storytellers lead you through a world like ours – just a little off centre.
