When the ancient Irish gods stepped onto the soil of Ireland, they burned their boats so they could never leave…
Storyteller Clare Muireann Murphy invites us into a beautiful yet bloodstained landscape where gods in golden halls drink from the cow of plenty, kings are healed by children, fathers vie with sons and lusty monsters spit in the face of the prophets. This contemporary performance of the Irish myths of invasion is tautly laced with wit and verve.
This event is presented in collaboration with the Crick Crack Club, a UK-based storytelling programmer and promoter, working with spoken word storytellers, developing audiences, supporting artists and collaborating with venues and festivals across the UK.
