Mortal Yarns

Off the Twig invites you to join them in a celebration of what it is to be mortal and to ponder this question…’How does our relationship with death shape our approach to life?’

True tales, fables and poetry are beautifully interwoven with shadow theatre visuals and music, all interspersed with opportunities for informal discussion over tea and cake.

Mortal Yarns shines a light on the one thing that truly connects us all…
