Rats' Tales is a Collection of entertaining, dark and magical folk tales sourced from around the world

The volume contains two texts for each story - a prose version and a dramatised version

And then, Melly Still's lively dramatization

Inspired by the story of The Pied Piper and Carol Ann's The Stolen Childhood, the show combines folk stories from around the world to present a play that deals with the sometimes painful and sometimes hilarious transition from childhood to adulthood

This magical cycle of folk tales creates an unforgettable evening and offers a genuine alternative to Christmas pantomime
