Sherlock: Literary Hero
Sherlock: Literary Hero features the telling of “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” by Rachel and Rebecca Oshlag of StoriesGalorious. Like elocutionists of earlier times, these storytellers adhere closely to the written word in their recitation and interpretation of literary works. Their performance enlivens the tale of a damsel in distress, cunning villain, stalwart companion, and hero of reason and action. Audience members unfamiliar with the plot will be engrossed by the story while admirers of Sherlock stories will be enthralled by the telling of one Holmes’ most rousing adventures. Rachel and Rebecca provide an introduction to the story, and they entertain questions and comments afterwards.
Created for the 2015 NYS Summer Reading Program, Every Hero Has a Story and year-round.
Midsummer Knights Tales: Stories of Heroes from the Middle Ages
Teens will be enthralled by the accounts of heroes from King Arthur’s realm and other legendary kingdoms in the British Isles. In addition to traditional storytelling, Rebecca and Rachel also employ literary storytelling, which requires close adherence to the written word, to bring modern translations of the Middle English works to their audiences. These stories continue to entertain and inspire, and modern audiences will enjoy them as much as did listeners during times long past.
This program can be adapted for an audience of teens and adults.
