• Scary Little Girls are a delight to work with, real crowd pleasers.  Mother Mae I is engaging and comic, full of vivacious guests and rapier wit, and with a compere who is brilliant, spontaneous, innovative and fun – this show is the new red wedge for the austerity era!

Asthall Manor

Storyteller Rebecca Mordan will introduce you to some new and little known literary fire-brands – side by side with such heroines of print as Jessica Mitford, Jeanette Winterson and Virginia Woolf. Scary Little Girls’ StorySmiths events have enjoyed sell out success at the Port Eliot, Brighton, and du Maurier literary festivals. The Scotsman hailed them as “unforgettable” and Rebecca herself as “resplendent”. Think high quality performance from a woman of letters or a glamorous performative lecture with a cheeky side of treats and a tipple!

Hosted by the acclaimed on form sculpture exhibition at stunning Asthall Manor (near Burford, Oxfordshire), this one-off bespoke event is not to be missed.  Booking open now.

“The word is out about this lovely performer and her wonderfully warm readings featuring cleverly created characters and witty, satirical or chilling tales! Rebecca Mordan had us alternatively in gales of literary laughter or bewitched with hauntingly sung stories – ever popular and in demand!” The Cornish Guardian

“The audience lapped up the opportunity to hear such wonderfully chosen, risqué and fascinating literary pieces, wound together so charmingly by Rebecca…” The Oxford Mail
