A double-bill performed by Nell Phoenix & Martin Shaw

The Crick Crack Club returns to the Cube with its a bold cinema of the imagination for thinkers, dreamers and seekers.

In the fairytale forest Tatterhood the wild twin, is coming this way – she’s riding a goat and she’s armed with a wooden spoon. Meanwhile, in Trickster’s wonderland, a man mimics a waterfall and almost gets away with it, a woman hides her doll-sized sister in her plaited hair, and we all journey to the edge of the earth…

Martin Shaw & Nell Phoenix serve up a double-bill of fairytales for grown-ups. Expect sheer magic, gleeful deceit, and anarchic tomfoolery.
