THE BALANCE OF THINGS or the settlement of a debt with a chicken...
Venture into the vibrant and liminal world of Breton fairytales, and a landscape filled with encounters with beauties, beasts, strange companions, bizarre marriages, and ruthless atonement.
In a charm-your-socks-off performance, Michael Harvey draws on the collections of François-Marie Luzel, to recast and retell these half-familiar grown-up tales of wonder with a disarmingly light touch.
These stories come from a place where everyday life and the fantastic collide – somewhere simultaneously earthy, ethereal and real, with a decidedly comedic twist.
