— The Cube
Crick Crack Club performance storytelling brings its wild haven of fairytales for grown-ups to the Cube
time:19:30pm
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

The legendary Crick Crack Club brings its wild haven of fairytale, myth and epic to the Cube. Here the finest performance storytellers create a bold cinema of the imagination for thinkers, dreamers and seekers.

TATTERHOOD, by MARTIN SHAW

TRICKSTERLAND, by NELL PHOENIX

There is a place where that which is broken can be mended;
thoughts can be heard;
old bones speak;
and everyone wants revenge...

In the fairytale forest Tatterhood the wild twin, is coming this way - she's riding a goat and she's armed with a wooden spoon. Meanwhile, in Trickster's wonderland, a man mimics a waterfall and almost gets away with it, a woman hides her doll-sized sister in her plaited hair, and we all journey to the edge of the earth...

Martin Shaw & Nell Phoenix serve up a double-bill of fairytales for grown-ups. Expect sheer magic, gleeful deceit, and anarchic tomfoolery.

‘…kooky, creative and off the wall’ EVERYTHING THEATRE

'An outrageous piece of magic' DAVID ABRAM

She also creates stories for charities and companies; recent commissions incl. V&A, Brit Museum, 40 Winks Bedtime Stories, WWF, Arts for Human Rights, and Selfridges.
