An original production from Parable Arts

— Shropshire Star

The British Isles are a rich tapestry woven together with myths, legends and folk-tales.  From Irish kings to Welsh dragons, English knights to Scottish warlocks, and even Cornish cats; the cultures of our Kingdom are captured in our stories.  Combining captivating storytelling, poetic verse and traditional folk songs, The Forgotten Tales  brings out the hilarious, the heroic, and the heartbreaking tales of magic and mystery, courtship and conflict, that were once a steady flame across the land.

The comedy of The Forgotten Tales is praiseworthy!
