Kate is an Irish storyteller with a background in acting, singing and language teaching. Born and educated in Cork, she originally left Ireland to work in Kenya, after which she moved to Europe, performing in a variety of theatres before joining UK-based Common Lore, a company of storyteller/musicians from different folkloric backgrounds.

About Xanthe Gresham Knight:

With sparkle and dynamism, our fabulous guest storyteller, Xanthe Gresham Knight, will sweep us along on a hilarious journey through the tumultuous experiences of a woman as she ages.

 In folklore and mythology rocks, flowers, pumpkins swell and spawn into life.

Buddah Babies  is a complex and hilarious exploration of what it means to be childless,  a weaving of personal and mythological stories  performed to perfection by a fearless raconteur, accompanied by lovely visuals, an array of exotic instruments and succulent sweet treats. An absolute delight!

At the end you leave with something beautiful created in your own mind” British Theatre Review
