The Rising Cost Of Cabbage

Here are five tales: a woman rockets out of her turret and straight through a mountain, a city sleeps while it burns, a king moors his boat to a fortress in the ocean, a long-held pebble is finally cast away and Rapunzel grows like a weed, pulled up, cut back, thrown away and twice as vigorous as before. 

All tales told wherever sailors come ashore on leave and towers rise up. What has any of this to do with the cost of cabbage? Come and you’ll see.

Audience reaction

“The Rising Cost of Cabbage had the audience spellbound throughout. The stories flow from one to another, from one universe to another, deepening with each gracefully conjured image. Alys’ telling explores challenging, meaningful themes with light touch that makes it both enjoyable and moving. Her performance is full of warmth and humour. Highly recommended! ” Abbie Palache, Brighton Storytellers

“It blew my mind. I had never looked at the stories that way and after hearing Alys, I will never look at them in the same way again”

“Torrance is a brilliant storyteller”
