The Crick Crack Club presents

The Spanking Goddess and other discarded tales, by Clare Murphy

Fairytales for Grown-ups

Thu 21 September // 20:00

Tickets: £10.50

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.

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