Aesop was… a philosopher, a con artist, an astute politician, a prototype Jeeves, a clown, a master storyteller…  Or was he?

 

He was also a slave… Or was he?

 

And he was certainly very ugly… Or was he?

 

Following the success of his “Haunted Dickens” at last year’s festival, Jonathan Collings returns with a brand new show, funny, exciting, and intriguing.

 

Based on unreliable Classical sources, and drawing freely on the famous Fables, “Aesop – The Grasshopper Years” tells the story of a man who ducked and dived, twisted and turned, rose to fame and fortune, and could always talk his way out of a tricky situation.

 

Or could he?
