Crick Crack Club Performance Storytelling presents

The Frog Princess Punked, by Sally Pomme Clayton & The Swamp Girls

The Cinema of the Imagination: Fairytales for Grown ups

-
Thu 29 March // 19:30

Tickets: £9 advance, £11 on the door

Crazed Russian fairytale meets punk rock.
Ivan is forced to marry a frog.
Baba Yaga meets Koschey the Deathless.
And the patriarchy is challenged...


Pioneering storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton and an all-girl band weld the noise of punk with a surreal narrative about the perils of annexing the wild, and the wisdom of letting the women loose. Together they create a cacophony of spoken word, song and distortion, amidst a scratch collage of images. It’s gonna be angry. It’s gonna be loud!
