FOR ALL THE FIRES NOT YET LIT
A solo performance from singer and storyteller Catherine Ireton about courage.
Bride-to-be Claire wakes with a nagging feeling that something isn’t quite right. There’s too much to do, her bottle of Lucozade has started being mean to her and there’s no milk for a cup of tea. So it is that a morning outing to the shops turns into an odyssey of tiny proportions in which Claire attempts to locate her brave bone. “being scared can be a good thing. It’s where adventures begin”
This small, tender and mighty story of everyday bravery is a clarion call to be brave in an age in which we are constantly told to be fearful. Because courage, like fear, can be contagious.
