The Crick Crack Club presents: Mr Sandmann - Bringer of Dreams & Nightmares

The Crick Crack Club presents: Mr Sandmann - Bringer of Dreams & Nightmares

Internationally renowned for his dynamic and challenging performances, Ben Haggarty slips behind the lights into the dark side of the fairground, where you risk getting more than you bargained for. Via freak-show and moonshine bar, ready yourself for an intense and alarming journey through the ambivalent mythology of the Sandman. Flirting with Americana; drawing on urban legend, fairytale, myth and folklore, and paying oblique homage to Heinrich Von Kleist, ETA Hoffman, Hans Andersen and Nick Cave, Ben Haggarty surrenders his sanity to the magnetic pull of a ravenous moon. ‘2 hours of storytelling genius’ Fringe Review ****

BEST OF THEATRICAL & LEGAL PROFESSIONS IN 80th YEAR MURDER IN THE CATHEDRAL

BEST OF THEATRICAL & LEGAL PROFESSIONS IN 80th YEAR MURDER IN THE CATHEDRAL

In the current climate of suicide attacks, religious conflicts and dangerous speech, Murder in the Cathedral remains painfully relevant in its 80th anniversary year. There's an obvious resonance between T.S. Eliot's drama about the killing of Archbishop Thomas Becket and the recent murder in Charlie Hebdo. So a unique collaboration between the legal and theatrical professions in the historic Temple Church this January has added appropriateness.
