About the show: Two years ago, James’s best friends, Sarah and Emma, decided they wanted to start a family so they asked him if he would donate his sperm. This is the story of what happened next. A storytelling show about friendship, faith, and trying to do the right thing, even if it means taking off all your clothes.

 

On The Amsterdam Storytelling Festival of 2019, James came from UK with his shows: Team Viking and A Hundred Different Words for Love. Our enthusiast audience wanted more! Revelations is made with Daniel Goldman and set in the same universe as features live music, nudity, laughter and tears.

Twee jaar geleden besloten de beste vrienden van James, Sarah en Emma, dat ze kinderen wilden en vroegen hem of hij zijn zaad wilde doneren. Dit is het verhaal van wat er vervolgens gebeurde. Een storytelling show over vriendschap, geloof, en proberen het juiste te doen, óók als dat betekent dat je uit de kleren moet.

 

Op het Amsterdam Storytelling Festival van 2019 kwam James over vanuit het VK met zijn shows: Team Viking en A Hundred Different Words for Love. Ons publiek was enthousiast en wilde meer. Revelations is, net als de twee voorgaande shows, samen met Daniel Goldman gecreëerd en belooft een avond vol live muziek, een lach en een traan.
