Unruly Woman at Birmingham Storytelling Cafe

June 19 @ 7:00 am - 9:30 pm


Storyteller and academic Daisy Black presents an indecorous assortment of medieval tales from around Europe about women who gain the upper hand – or, occasionally, the upper arse.

These are stories of sex, of disguise and deception, of arse-kissing, and of women finding creative, naughty and cunning ways to overcome the restrictions placed upon them by their gender and class.

Interlacing medieval fables and romance with bawdy folk songs, this one-woman performance pays homage to literature’s original ‘nasty women’.
