A charming French guide, eccentric characters.
* * * The List
Remember those Johnnies coming from Brittany with their onions? One of them settled in Randolph Crescent a long time ago. His great grandsons still live there and invite you for a tour of the family house.
Ok, we all know it’s not true. But what if it had been for real? The storytellers, comedians, musicians, puppeteers and designers of Paroles Traverses - Mythos Festival (Rennes, Brittany) take over the French Institute’s building to invent this onion Johnnies fantasy. This original Fringe production involves offices turned into bedrooms, striped shirts, onions (obviously) and some very silly stories.

For this unique occasion the Institut reopens the ’Bistrot’, a licensed café-bar. Open from 10 am until late, le Bistrot and its garden offer a cosy atmosphere to enjoy a drink and typical French snacks, wait for the guide, and maybe catch a glimpse of a ghost or two...
