Our next production

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) our next production has been postponed until June 2021

 Play Readings

A play full of intrigue and imagination

The Countess d’Aulnoy led a fascinating and dramatic life, spending at least 15 years of her life as an exile, possibly acting as a spy. She was a famous raconteur, entertaining her friends in the Paris salons with her stories, many adapted from her extensive knowledge of folklore. She was the first to call use the term fairy stories in her best-remembered works Contes de fées (“Fairy Tales”) and Les Contes nouveaux ou les fées à la mode (“New Tales, or the Fancy of the Fairies”).

Tales the Countess Told by Stephen Wyatt weaves together the story of her own life with dramatisations of some of those stories providing a script which should be engaging for adults and children.
Come and join us next Monday, 30th November to read at 7.30 pm Tales The Countess Told
