Mary and her Sheep
This is a story I first heard told by Billy Teare, a teller from Northern Ireland. Billy tells me it is an Ethiopian folk tale.
The video clips here are all amateur quality, shot in various theatres, or – as here – in my home studio..
Their intention is just to show the range of my storytelling and give a flavour of a live performance.
