Don’t you dare to climb the stairs to the Rooftop, grab a cocktail & open your ears to world of stories? Inspired by Oz’z cowardly lion, Giles Abbott will regale you with stories of cowardice & courage.
From Somalia, the corpse of Igal Shiidade argues with his widow about how he died. She keeps getting it wrong!. From Senegal a hyena tricks & deceives everyone, even his wife & kids, but has he been tricked too? That sheep he’s leading, does it have suspiciously soft paws & sharp claws? Then in ancient scandinavia a brave warrior tries to teach a terrified young man the secret of courage (WARNING–may contain dragons). Lastly, from Egypt, a heartbreaking story of the bravest act of love a man can make.
You coming? Go on, we dare you…."
