Mr Rook's Speak Easy Presents: GIANTS! by Lisa Schneidau and Ronnie Conboy

Lisa Schneidau and Ronnie Conboy

Stories from the Bedrock of the British Isles.

“There were giants on the earth in those days….”

Lisa Schneidau and Ronnie Conboy present a storytelling journey through some of the old myths, an exploration of the relationship between the Giants – the great rock builders – and the human beings that came after.

Where did the Giants come from? Where have they gone? And who left all those boulders lying around?

Join us for an evening of myth and story, of fun, wonder, music, laughter and a smidgen of comedy violence, and maybe you’ll find out…

The Falcon Bride

‘It seems unlikely that this is the last wedding where you will feature as the bride…’

Beautiful, fierce and deadly, Hallgerd is not a woman to be taken lightly, ripping through husbands like a falcon through its prey. But has she met her match in Gunnar, a true Viking hero?

Katy Cawkwell tells episodes from the great Icelandic Njal’s Saga, offering a fascinating glimpse into pagan society in the land of fire and ice.

Darkly comic, tragically romantic by turns: this is a tale full of sex, murder, power politics and the importance of salt fish…
