The Crick Crack Club presents The Spanking Goddess & Other Discarded Tales with storyteller, Clare Murphy.

Stellar storyteller Clare Murphy exhumes the Celtic canon to bring the wild women who never made the cut, back into the light.

A shapeshifter spanks her opponents, a queen balances on the point of a spear, a goddess is caught in a face-off with death, heroes are defeated by mother-daughter warriors, and we witness the first divorce…and the woman won.

These are not your regular myths. Expect wicked tales of badass deities, feral fighters, unorthodox sex, hairy bodies, mastery, and goddess-on-goddess battles - not for the faint-hearted and definitely for grown-ups. No interval.

CULTURE WHISPER CONTENT WARNING: This performance contains descriptions of sex, bodies, sexual threat, and death contextualised within a paradigm of mythic narrative, archetype and metaphor.

Ages 16+
