A Happy New Year from the Friends of Burnham Library.
Many people who came to our presentation of “Mrs Oscar Wilde” last September were impressed by our Actress and Writer, Lexi Wolfe and a lot of people said to me that we should get her back to do another show.
I am delighted to tell you that we have booked her for her new Show, The Storyteller” on Friday 2nd February at 7.00 for 8.00pm, with our buffet and wine to start with the performance from 8.00pm.
This is appropriate as it is National Storytelling Week and we will be arranging some other storytelling events in the Library especially for Children.
The write up of her show “ “Fascinated with campfire and bardic stories, especially those with a Pagan twist, she has created a relaxed show wherein she can share traditional stories as well as her own.
The stories will include:
The Birth of Sleipnir – The tale of how Odin’s legendary eight-legged horse came into being.
The Lady and The Knight – An a cappella song about love and the wrath of the old gods.
The Wise Woman’s Spell – When a young villager is confronted with unrequited love, he visits the local cunning woman to help resolve his problem.
The Two Brothers – When one brother loses his elder, he covers the earth in search of him.”
Lexi achieved the Commendation for Julian Battersby Young Playwright’s Award in 2014 for her One Act Play, Indiscretion, was nominated Best Supporting Actress at the Short Film Awards in New York City, 2015 and was nominated Best Female Actor at the Buxton Fringe with her debut performance of ‘Mrs. Oscar Wilde’.
Tickets costing £12 for Members of the Friends are £12 and £15 for standard tickets to include our much praised buffet and a glass of wine,
They are available from Library Reception or you can go online to www.friendsofburnhamlibrary.org and book online.
I do hope that you will support this unusual show and enjoy another excellent performance from Lexi.
