The Suitcase Storytelling Company

The Suitcase Storytelling Company was founded in 2019 by expert storytellers Niall Moorjani and Minnie Wilkinson. Their work blends found object theatre with oral tradition storytelling to simultaneously explore the deeply heartfelt and the wonderfully whimsical, bringing joy to their audiences through original folk tale-style stories with progressive narratives.

Both established storytellers in their own right, their previous work has garnered critical acclaim, and their first outing of 'Not Your Grandma's Folk Tales' was well received at the Falmouth Cringe 2022. Their debut children's show 'The Girl and the Dragon' toured the UK in 2022, winning the award for Best Children's Show by the Derek Awards for their run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

They are keen to remind adults that storytelling isn't just for children, and bringing storytelling up to date to reflect the diversity of our own world is at the core of their practice.
