I heard the story many years ago from a participant on a storytelling-in-education course, and followed up his source of Bush People tales (Märchen der Buschmänner by Giesela von Radowitz, Werner Dausien Verlag, Hanau 1983). Since then it has become one of my favourite tales to tell.

This recording was made at my 2019 Amnesty International benefit performance.

More deep tales

The video gallery has become very extensive. So if you would enjoy more tales like this which explore the depths of the human psyche, here are a few suggestions.



The video clips here are all amateur quality, shot in various theatres.

Their intention is just to show the range of my storytelling and give a flavour of a live performance.
