Award winning blind storyteller Giles Abbott weaves the complexities of celebrated poet and savage satirist Alexander Pope’s life into a story of his art, his ambitions, his feuds with friends and literary rivals, exploring the conflicts both around and within this extraordinary man.
Giles Abbott is an award-winning storyteller. His repertoire includes Iron-Age myth from British and Norse traditions, Greek myths, and folk tales from around the world. He is the Storyteller in Residence at the Last Tuesday Society’s Museum Of Curiosities, and a regular at storytelling and literature festivals.
