BED at the Brighton Festival

For this year’s Brighton Festival, White Rabbit‘s Bernadette Russell will be visiting people at home in their beds and reading them a story written especially for them.


Their rooms won’t be quite as they remembered them, there will be surprises and a midnight feast. Podcasts of the stories and conversations to follow. The story may continue in their dreams…..

BED is an on-going storytelling experiment, and has taken place in a giant bed at The Basement in Brighton, in a outdoor bed-on-stilts at Stroud Art Fair and in various beds of friends and strangers. Inspired by Truman Capote’ short story “Master Misery”
