Myths retold is a series of performances of some of the greatest stories in the world, presented in collaboration with the Crick Crack Club. Enter a flickering cave of wonder for a wild exploration of epic and myth.

'Out with you upon the wild waves, Children of the King! Henceforth your cries shall be with the birds.'

In ancient Ireland, words held true power to alter reality and determine the future.

Clare Murphy walks the old paths of this beautiful and ever-shifting landscape to bring us a contemporary performance of Irish myths that is tautly laced with wit and verve.

Enter the realm of feral curses, lost children, epic transformations, prophecy, fate and betrayal.

Clare Muireann Murphy was born in Dublin, and has lived in Spain, America, Galway and London, and currently resides in Bristol. A dynamic and witty performer, she has performed in festivals and theatres across the world, and her repertoire extends from her beloved Irish mythology to world folklore, anecdotes, fables, personal and original stories.

'A sheer delight! For those thirsty for a different type of show this is a must see!' Everything Theatre
