And, back in the room...
Anyway, some people went for it and I performed the first shows on Saturday and it went rather well. Each performance was different - more so than in any other performance situation I've worked in before. Some sat and decided not to look at me. Most looked into my eyes throughout. Many found the normal cues of conversation kept coming up, making the usual noises you make when you're talking to someone. Little smiles, ur-hums, nods. But then, after a few minutes, they stopped... just listening... focused in a way that you don't always get in theatre, if nothing else because drifting off would seem rude.
I'm looking forward to seeing how the next set of audients react this Saturday - there are still some slots left, email me firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 07704 704 469 to book your place. And if you're not convinced - well, here's some of the feedback from last week...
“How fabulous! Thank you Robert. I will keep thinking about aspects of that story or two stories! Truly wonderful!” - Jacqueline Cooper Clarke
“Absolutely brilliant!! Light and airy, dark, happy, sad, perfectly crafted and enjoyed every minute. Bravo!” – Peter Day
“Funny, weird, intriguing, enthralling. That’s the story. The storyteller, knockout. Beautifully delivered. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.” – Kevin Roychowdhury
“Totally brilliant! Mesmerising, intriguing, I could have sat for another 20 minutes! Thank you! J” - Marion Tuke

“My father was a lovely, kind, reserved...
Nut job. I say this in the nicest possible way.
When he died he believed that he was both fifty
and a hundred at the same time...”
Problem Tree is the impossible story of one man’s father and a tree that can’t exist. A story of the First World War, of running away from your past and hiding in the future. Let storyteller Robert Crighton guide you through his alternative vision of the world in the genial environs of the Quay Theatre – one-to-one storytelling, just for you. Get yourself a drink and perhaps a bite to eat, sit back and relax for twenty minutes of you time.
