Time: 7pm

Description: Join us as we transform the library into an innovative performance space for this special one-off theatre event. 

Common Lore is an exciting fusion of rap, spoken word, projections and live electronic music. A modern take on traditional stories, this unique and relevant show sees Fairy Tales and modern life collide! 

An inventive, fast-paced reinvention of traditional theatre, technology and spoken word all performed by one young woman (and her mobile phone!) 

Meet Scarlet, as she reinvents the childhood stories told to her by her nan in her own unique way. 

This original piece of theatre was commissioned with audiences aged 11-25 in mind, but it is suitable for all ages 11 and over. 

All tickets for this show are just £5, and can be bought from the library online

The running time of this performance is approximately one hour, with a post show discussion being held afterwards. 

"Witty, engaging and interesting."

"Original, fast and very engaging."

This event was programmed as part of the Blacon Library 50 year celebration, showcasing the legacy and community status of the library since 1968.
