Live storytelling…and you’re in the show.
A writer tells a story. You listen. And then you get involved: asking questions, giving opinions…and shaking rattles.
We can also create a bespoke one-off show for your festival or venue. If you want to book us, read this.
From small beginnings…to the best of the Brighton Festival Fringe
Rattle Tales is a collective of eleven Brighton based writers. We’re joined for each show by quality guest writers, chosen from open submissions.
We started Rattle Tales because we wanted to bring exciting new writing to the Brighton stage.
And we wanted to give the people who come to listen a chance to get involved and help and fuel writers’ creativity.
Our nights are part stage performance, part lively writing workshop and part night in the pub.
We have audience members who come back time after time, and guest writers who want to do the same. Every show we do is a mix of old hands, new faces, friendly debate, and creative discovery.
And that’s how we’ve gone from intimate nights, to sell-out crowds, festival invitations, and national recognition as one of 24 i newspaper iLikes: the best of the Brighton Festival Fringe.
