Details

Allow performers from Scary Little Girls to stimulate your senses! This intimate storytelling salon celebrates the relationship between cocoa nibs and forbidden literature…When chocolate was first brought to England in the 1600s, it was considered a taboo substance, enjoyed only by the risque and elite in private salons. Some of our finest literature was also once considered too provocative for public consumption and was heard in similar salon environments by only the boldest of ears. We recreate these intimate environs, combining mouth watering chocolate treats with tales of the secret, banned and scandalous from authors such as Lord Byron, Mae West, Angela Carter and Joanne Harris.

Performed, read and sung to you by our highly acclaimed storytellers, the Salon du Chocolat invites you to succumb to a literary seduction!

Recommended age: 14+

“Scary Little Girls bring a delicious theatrical flair to your favourite pieces of literature and introduce you to works that will become new favourites.” Katy Snelling, Programmer, Oxford Playhouse

“The audience lapped up the opportunity to hear such wonderfully chosen, risque and fascinating literary pieces, wound together so charmingly by Rebecca and her company Scary Little Girls!” The Oxford Mail

“The word is out about these lovely performers and their wonderfully warm readings – ever popular and in demand" The Cornish Guardian
