You are cordially invited to spend an evening with some unusual guests: a troll hag with three heads, the queen of Elvin Land, a stark naked drummer, a white bear king, the ghosts of a murdered babe or two, and Something that Cannot be Named. Accompany the princess as she changes from a bird into a fish, the mysterious young man as he changes from a lion into a snake, and the two magicians as they shape-shift from rose and bee to corpse and clay (and, most likely, back again).

Willy Claflin is a storyteller and musician who has been featured seven times at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN. This will be his third appearance on the non-stage in our dining room – he’s an audience favorite, and a dear friend, and quite unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced – in a delightful way.

“An astute ear for the incongruous and a blithe love of the absurd. This is a folkie who kicks the stuffing out of museum pieces.” – The Boston Phoenix

The Davis Musical Theatre Company youth group will also perform.
