Matlock Storytelling Cafe presents: The Spanking Goddess and Other Discarded Tales

5 Apr 2024, 7:00 PM

She's back! We're delighted to announce that we have been able to reschedule the wonderful Clare Murphy to our next cafe in April (train strikes permitting).  

For those of a delicate disposition, look away now...

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.

Adult Rating: This performance contains descriptions of sex, bodies, sexual threat, and death contextualised within a paradigm of mythic narrative, archetype and metaphor.

We are delighted that Clare is returning to Matlock Storytelling Cafe and when we heard about this set we couldn't wait to book it in. Tickets will sell out (we know you're going to love this one Matlock) so please book soon.
