Two Youths, Two Girls and a Mirror
An Iraqi folk tale of two young people learning one of life’s most important lessons
I found this tale in a wonderful collection Told in the Market Place by C.G. Campbell (London, 1954).
Princess of the Roses is a Palestinian fairy tale from the same book.
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.
