The Remarkable Tale of Robert Desnos

About the Show

Funny, surreal, moving and true. A concentration camp may seem an unlikely backdrop for a wild night of fairytales, but when French poet and journalist Robert Desnos is captured by the Nazis, his response is to organise clandestine gatherings in the camp’s washroom.

As the horror of the camps grows, so does the dark enchantment, surreal comedy andtransformative power of the inmates’ tales, until the only question that remains is how much power can the imagination really have when hope is slowly fading….

This remarkable tale is exceptionally told by two of today’s very best storytellers – Clare Muireann Murphy, bursting with wit and dynamic physicality and Daniel Morden, renowned for his passionate, world-class performances.

Encounter the deadly reality of the camp alongside the beauty and richness of countless other worlds, as this weaving together of finely crafted stories demonstrates the extraordinary power of words to shape and change reality.

The Remarkable Tale of Robert Desnos is brought to you by Adverse Camber productions, one of the UK’s most celebrated storytelling companies. Generating an overwhelming audience response, this show creates an uplifting and powerful shared experience as you witness the making of a legend.
