In this eclectic collection of tales from around the world, Polly brings together the stories of women who keep adventuring beyond their wedding day and who refuse to be boxed up.


Not maidens. Not crones. Not (necessarily) Mothers - these are heroines who are too busy to live happily ever after when the church bells stop ringing.


From peasant girls to princesses, fishwives to Queens, they demand the right to keep risk-taking, rule-breaking, cross-dressing, mistaking, hoodwinking and life-tasting - quite despite being somebody’s wife.


Perhaps they know what Happily Ever After truly looks like.



Upcoming 2023 Performance Dates:

Wednesday 21st June @ Birmingham Storytelling Cafe, 7.30pm.
