Firebird
The Tsar is fed up of having his favourite apples stolen from the orchards. He sends his youngest son, Azad, on a quest to find the thief. On his journey, Azad encounters the famous, fantastic, fabled firebird. With the help of a friendly wolf and a skilled horsewoman called Sulinder, he tries to defeat his two lazy older brothers and bring the firebird home to his father.
In an amusing and exciting journey into fantasy and adventure, actor Chris Connaughton creates a new version of this classic tale.

Tales from a Tall Tower
Tales from the Tall Tower is a story about storytelling. A gardener tries to get the coveted job of ‘Royal Storyteller’ and has to come up with more and more ideas to make his own tale more interesting and good enough for the King.
In this thrilling journey into the world of story, actor and writer Chris Connaughton creates a variety of tales old and new. Bring your imaginations along, and maybe you can help him to come up with some stories on the spot!
