Last Blog Before the Balloon Goes Up...

Okay, there's no balloon.  Sorry.  Today we got into the Barons Court Theatre ready for tomorrows first night!  Highlights included sharing the stage and the lighting box with Sophie's dog Tinkerbell - of whom you will hear so much in the future.  There is video.  Otherwise it was just a matter of set dressing, slow teching and general working of the words what I wrote so that they come out in the right order.  Tomorrow we'll spend the day doing a bit more art - focusing on performance rather than tech - before our first night.  And we want you to be there.  This is a show that I am very proud of - it has come out very well, funny and moving at the turn of a line.  Come and visit us - it's so much more interesting here.

Milk Bottle Productions Presents...
The Natural History of Trolls
Written and Performed by Robert Crighton
Plus Special Guests: Georgina Blackledge & Sophie Morris-Sheppard

“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.
