London Storytelling Festival: The Passion of The Hodgson: Wil Hodgson
In 2004 a magical thing happened in the tiny back room of a pub in Edinburgh. A new storytelling comedy force was being born. This show, with no blurb, no publicity, (and a village chip-shop-sponsored poster) was quietly blowing minds.
This charmingly told collection of tales, spoke of a fantastical world of punks and skinheads, of love and war – all set in the west country village of Chippenham. At the end of that month, this curious man, and his tiny anthology of tales went on to win the Perrier best Newcomer. Nowadays, Wil Hodgson is a critically acclaimed cult comedy hero. Come see the show that started it all.
