The Crick Crack Club has been programming epic, myth and fairytale performances for grown-ups since the 1980’s. Which is why all audiences need to know in advance, is that the answer to ‘Crick’, is ‘Crack’.

RED BEAD WOMAN – Apr 16

At the very edge of the fire, a woman arises from a mare’s tale plant with red beads falling from her mouth as she speaks, and a king’s son tied to the top of the tallest pine tree, is slowly becoming a crow.

CROW. BLOOD. SNOW – June 18

Sally Pomme Clayton weaves forgotten folklore and fragments of myth from Ireland to Italy, Scandinavia to Siberia – conjuring the dark and dangerous figure of Crow.
