The Stove sits within a house. The house is at the end of a lane. The lane is long. But on a good day, with the wind blowing in the right direction, the smells of incense and herbs brewing blend with the air, and the sounds of stories whisper all along the long lane…

The Stove by London theatre-maker and performer Emma Brand invites you to forge communities through storytelling. The Stove is a virtual meeting place – a fireside, kitchen table, cooking pot composite – a place to gather for a warm cuppa, to create new worlds with people you haven’t yet got to know.
