Fame, Infamy and Forebears
This month’s Storyteller’s Café features Caroline Welkin with a thrilling tale of life of Boxomania in the 18th century; Ralph Johnson with a story from his forebears, and new face at the Café, Justin Murphy with a tale from the Emerald Isles of ultimate infamy. True tales from our families buried histories.
Caroline Welkin is a seasoned performer in storytelling and stand-up who is delighted to bring the tale of Mendoza, Star of the East, to the Café for the first time – a man who changed the face of boxing and theatre throughout Europe. As she researched this story, they began the film - https://www.facebook.com/mendozafeaturefilm. This will be Caroline’s first appearance as a preview to a cinematic event!
Ralph Johnson is a Shakespearean actor, improvisational actor and long-time storyteller. Always warm and entertaining, he has enjoyed adding family stories to his repertoire with their unique perspective on the growth of Aotearoa from early settlers viewpoints.
Justin Murphy was inspired to develop his first tale by a family tale so infamous it went untold for many, many years.
All the tales reflect ordinary people who came to change history. Join us for these very personal and fascinating snapshots in time.
Holly de Ket will be your host for the evening.
