The Three Crones
A bawdy Italian fairy tale – of and for imagination
My German audiences love slightly bawdy tales – and here is a great one from Italy. My version is loosely based on that found in Italian Folktales, Italo Calvino (1956).
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.
