There is a time and a season to all things, and death is an inevitable part of the circle of life. Oral traditions from all over the world are full of stories giving shape to the very human wish to defy death - our own death and the deaths of others. Folk Tales of the Ever After is a collection of traditional tales from a range of cultures which is, by turns, funny, challenging and touching.

From a man in Baghdad who tries to outrun Death, to Sir Lancelot's ride on the hangman's cart and an Ancient Sumerian ball game that leads to a trip to the underworld, storytellers Fiona and June invite you to share stories from their repertoire, and insights into their working practice, as a journey through the mysteries of death, dying, bereavement, loss, grief and the ever after.
