Riddlestick Theatre’s Songs of the Curious

Riddlestick Theatre are a Bristol-based troupe of actor-musicians dedicated to tickling fancies with weird and wonderful stories and enchanting live music.

Their fringe hit ‘The Cabinet of Madame Fanny Du Thé’ was listed as one of The Guardian’s ‘Best Shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018’ and their late-night festive romp ‘Undercover Christmas Club’ wowed Bristol folk back in 2019.

‘Songs of the Curious’ is a storytelling gig featuring ditties from shows-gone-by and shows-to-come, along with some curious takes on songs you forgot you knew. Join us in the woods for folky fairy-tales, preposterous parables and macabre melodies as we lament the lives of fools and Frenchmen and bewitch the birds above our heads.

“Their energy is boundless, the script fiercely intelligent and the original live music bound to stay dancing through your head.” – The Guardian (for ‘The Cabinet of Madame Fanny Du Thé’)
