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
