THE FLAMING QUEEN told by Lucy Lill
When a poor young woman stumbles into the gilded halls of luxury she can’t believe her luck.
Money, power and status: all hers for the taking…if she’ll do just one little thing.
Join Lucy Lill on a journey from poverty to power, via the hot sweat of the underworld as she asks:
What would you do for everything you’ve ever wanted?
Lucy Lill is a London-based performer. She’s told stories at The Wellcome Collection, Kew Gardens, Half Moon Young People’s Theatre,
Newbury Corn Exchange, Fireside Festival Art in Action Festival and others, as well as schools across London for
The Literacy Trust and The Latin Programme. She co-runs Story Jam, a regular storytelling night for adults. https://storyjamjar.com/
‘Listening to Lucy Lill is like a cool glass of water on a hot hot day.
Her stories are clear and lucid, and whilst her insights are profound, she wears her learning lightly – she is witty and funny, equally at home in Greek Myths or Alaskan folk tales.’ - Sarah Rundle
‘A masterclass in how storytelling can break your heart and stitch the pieces back together in a new shape.’ - Stephe Harrop, The Juniper Tree

About StoryNight at Torriano
London’s liveliest storytelling club-night for adults, run by Nell Phoenix.
Professional storytellers headline the evenings at our intimate, candle-lit space. They spellbind us with stories that have been told and re-told for ever - epics, myths, legends, folk and fairytales.
These tellers transport with their tales, they connect in the moment with the space, the story and the audience, creating an intimate and unique experience. At StoryNight, storytelling is a traditional yet wholly contemporary performance art.
StoryNight is at the grassroots of the London storytelling scene. We have a fun and friendly crowd and the best listening ears in the capital!
At StoryNight we encourage well-honed 10-minute tales from the floor. Speak to Nell on arrival.
And it’s only £7 on the door including wine and nibbles. For details about the next StoryNight, see our Diary page.
Take a punt on any of the (other) storytellers Phoenix finds for her Story Night. This really is storytelling for grown-ups at its absolute best - one of London's best-kept secrets.
People did not wait for writing before they told stories

Without stories we would go mad. Stories can conquer fear, you know. They make the heart larger.
