The Interlinear of Cabeza de Vaca by Haniel Long

Soldier, survivor, slave, shamen. “This is the tale of what men can and cannot do when they must do something or die”. The conquistador, Cabeza De Vaca, shipwrecked in Florida in 1528, addresses his king, telling how he was lost, saved, enslaved, and finally became a healer to the tribes who helped him find his way back to so-called civilisation eight years later. A true story told by local actor, Tom Morris, with live double bass accompaniment, composed and performed by Gavin Irvine.


Darkly delicious story cabaret bursting with bittersweet love and dangerous desires. May include a porcelain man, a strangely attractive French werewolf – and the woman for whom one was never enough! From Scottish seashore to the back streets of Casablanca. Fuelled by traditional story, flirting with contemporary and original tales, fabulously funny and hot off the tongue unscripted enjoyment!

Cost: £10.50
