— The Cube
Crick Crack Club performance storytelling brings its wild haven of fairytales for grown-ups, myth & epic at the Cube.
price: Headfirst Tickets


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.


Performance storytelling by BEN HAGGARTY. Music by JONAH BRODY

A bored king,

A wild man tamed by a whore,

A quest for eternal life,

And the deepest secrets of the gods...

Over 3,500 years after this ancient Sumerian epic was first etched into clay tablets, Ben Haggarty and Jonah Brody, bring Gilgamesh to the stage in an extraordinary and powerful telling of one of the oldest stories in the world.

Deities are irritated and appeased by turn, supernatural beings are slain, apocalypse is averted, and our anti-hero turned hero, discovers what it really is to be a man. The result is a passionate, fast paced epic, laced with quick-witted humour.

'Absolutely spellbinding ' **** Everything Theatre

“Vivid, rich and imposingly epic” **** The Times
