Really get to know family and friends by listening to their stories and then have fun retelling them, so all those special stories can be passed on from generation to generation.

For this episode you’ll need another person! At home, on the phone or online.

Theatre makers Sarah Rose Graber and Ruxy Cantir lead a series of interactive videos about how to create and tell stories at home. Imaginations will be unleashed and stories created from everyday surroundings.From using different story structures and bringing characters to life to discovering new and exciting ways to engage with the objects at home, each new episode will result in at least one original tale to share with friends and family.
