Myths retold is a series of performances of some of the greatest stories in the world, presented in collaboration with the Crick Crack Club. Enter a flickering cave of wonder for a wild exploration of epic and myth.

A king betrayed by his wife decides to reap his revenge on woman-kind by bedding, then slaughtering, one virgin every night... but then he meets Sheharazade.

Sheharazade, the storyteller who saved her own life together with the lives of her children by telling stories for 1001 nights, is one of the great cultural creations of the Arab world. Stories nestle within stories, with demons, errant spouses, thieves, fools and comedians all jostling for attention.

The fabulous Egyptian storyteller and performer, Chirine El Ansary returns to the Crick Crack Club to tell some of the most intriguing and deliciously seductive episodes from The Nights, stories that explore the deepest passions and desires of men and women.

Combining grown-up folk and fairytale, the fabulous storyteller, Chirine El Ansary, draws us into the most intriguing episodes of The Nights - and the deepest passions and desires of men and women.

Ticketing: £10 (£8 concessions). More information about the event here.
