The Show

Story Builders is a unique family show which makes its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe this year.

It is a family show in two ways:

  1. It is engaging and educational for all the family. 
  2. It has been created by family team The Interactive Storytelling Collective, made up of Hess Owenhill (sister), Alex Owen-Hill (brother) and Jim Bryce Hill (dad). Learn all about us on the Who Are We page.

Part interactive workshop, part magical fairytale, Story Builders is exciting, spellbinding and educational. Together, we will create a story built entirely from your ideas. In the process, you will learn the secrets to building a great story. You will go away from the show knowing how to tell better stories to your family and friends.

It was really interactive!

I just loved the way you guys worked with the kids. That really worked very very well. The kids got into it in a way that it was really interactive for them.

Absolutely brilliant. Our grandsons were so animated building a remarkable story all the way home. A very good story as it happened, I was amazed at what was included. Authors need to learn from Story Builders. Truly. Website very rich.

Thoroughly enjoyed myself at Story Builders yesterday. It's a great, interactive family show but all us adults had just as good a time as the kids. Highly recommend

What a delightful show! a beautiful way for children and adults to gently engage in building their own story and then to experience the joy of listening to it being told back to them by a very skilled story teller.

Chris Watkins

An ingenious interactive show

This is an excellent and ingenious interactive show. The children (and adults) in the show I attended clearly found it easy to contribute ideas and were given every encouragement. The actors are energetic and highly skilled, and display some remarkable feats of memory! Highly recommended!

Children know the story!

I thought it was very professionally done. Really loved it! I'm a little bit lost for words. It's really good to give children the opportunity to write their own story, and they all want to do that. They know the story.
