The Feast of Fools encourages oral storytelling in Northampton, bringing excellent professional story tellers and providing a platform for local storytellers and musicians.
Lead storyteller for Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Debs Newbold is an internationally known, award winning performer, a consummate storyteller who can take the audience from fear to delight, laughter to real tears with just a word or a look - her performance is deeply felt and often very funny.

She uses her intense love and knowledge of Shakespeare's work to retell his stories in a solo performance in which she unleashes a dazzling stream of verbal improvisation and physical dynamism to transport the audience through this dramatic, shocking and deeply human story. We are truly lucky to bring her here, with a performance which earlier this year featured at The Globe.

Book early to see the superb force of nature that is Debs in full flow!
