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.

One woman, nine trusted companions, six treacherous midwives, and the hanging of a mouse...

Intelligent, generous and with a dry wit, a queen travels from her Other World, riding a horse that no one can catch. She comes because of love, but this love between a goddess and a mortal is destined for trouble.

The Welsh epic cycle of the Mabinogion is renowned for its complex fragmentary brilliance. Performance Storyteller Katy Cawkwell untangles the 1st and 3rd branches of this beautiful Celtic myth to bring us Rhiannon.

Katy Cawkwell has been working as a storyteller since 1996 creating and performing shows drawn mainly from British and European traditions. She has featured at nine international storytelling festivals and was one of four shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Storytelling Fellowship. Katy also works in educational and corporate settings, including Royal Opera House Adult Education, English National Opera and the National Gallery.
