• Scary Little Girls insist that Schiller’s themes – asylum, religion and the State and civil rights – still prevail in today’s post 9/11 climate: they’re not wrong… Ryan McBryde’s production opts for a daring time travelling portentousness… like much else in the production it comes to accrue a curious power.

Back in the BBF!

We’re delighted to be returning to the Breckland Book Festival (#BBF2014!) in Norfolk for the second year running – and especially honoured to be performing at the launch event on Wednesday 26th February.  Scary Little Girls will share a stage with celebrated author Louis de Bernières, who will read from his new collection of verse, Imagining Alexandria: Poems in Memory of CP Cavafy, accompanying his poems on flute, mandolin, clarinet and guitar.

Scary Little Girls will join Louis by reading extracts from our Story Smiths show, which we will be performing in full during the festival:

Tuesday 4th March, 7.30pm at Attleborough Library
Tuesday 11th March, 7.30pm at Dereham Library
Tuesday 18th March, 7.30pm at Swaffham Library

We are also very excited to be creating a special Norfolk Living Literature Walk on the afternoon of Saturday 29th March – see you in Thetford!

“Everyone’s talking about Scary Little Girls – are they worth the hype? Yes!”
