Acclaimed storyteller, Dominic Kelly, will lead his audience through an audacious tale of deceit at the Black Bottom Club in George Row, Northampton, tomorrow.

The Trickster is the latest of the Royal & Derngate’s collaborations with storytelling specialists, The Crick Crack Club.

The story follows the antics of John Henry Williams, loosely based on the infamous imposter and criminal, Percy Toplis, ‘The Monocled Mutineer’.

Kelly uses trickster tales and motifs from Norway and Africa, as well as Middle Eastern folk tales, to create a mysterious anti-hero.

The show will be performed on Thursday, May 30 at 8pm. Tickets cost £9.50. To book, call 01604 624811 or visit the website www.royalandderngate.co.uk. Recommended for those aged 18 and over.
