International assassins! Secret codes! Dog-eating boa constrictors!!! Master storyteller Polarbear introduces a world of zany characters and madcap adventures as he invites you to explore how one little decision set off a huge chain reaction in is life. This highly intimate and interactive one-man show asks how storytelling begins--and pushes the boundaries of where it can go from there!

Polarbear, one of the UK's most exciting spoken word artists, digs deep into the hole left when his father went away, and the resulting moment he discovered the powerful art of storytelling. The Irish Times says the audience is "fully invested" in the fascinating creation taking place right before their eyes. Come open your mouth, and let your story come to life. Most enjoyed by age 8 and up. All patrons, regardless of age must have a ticket. .
