Here is a richly textured musical adventure about the charismatic author of Treasure Island. Young Robert Louis Stevenson defies chronic ill health and Victorian family traditions by going places and taking risks. His high spirits and sparkling talent dazzle London's literati until a turbulent romance sends him on a reckless odyssey to California. A stranger in colorful old Monterey, he finds that winning at love becomes a life and death struggle to salvage his writing career and save himself. Launched with simultaneous premieres in Scotland and California, Teller of Tales has a powerful script, witty lyrics and a memorable musical score ranging from reel to ragtime.
