John Henry Williams walks out of school. His classmates, teachers, and the local doctor have already fallen foul of his trickery.

Ahead are fun, fortune and a hundred more serious ruses to try. Little does he know he’ll soon be hunted as the most wanted man in the country.

Harbouring deviously disguised global trickster tales and real-life story, Storyteller Dominic Kelly embarks on an audacious tale of trickery and deceit; a tale where truth and hearsay, history, folktale and myth flicker like shadows in sunshine. Come journey on a trickster’s side of the road…

 Need more convincing? – Read this review from Erica Wagner in The Times, Saturday 7th July 2012

“Then there was Dominic Kelly’s new show, Trickster, a compelling,funny and heartbreaking construction drawing on the life of Percy Toplis, who towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th seemed to fool everyone he met. Kelly’s performance gave this character from history aspects of Anansi, Coyote, and Crow, eternal, mythological tricksters without whom human culture can’t seem to survive. We need the tricksters, particularly in tough times.”
