The Crick Crack Club presents: A Figure of Speech with storyteller Daniel Morden as he explores the wonderful, often ridiculous and occasionally horrific world of the human body.

An angel inhabits a human body...
A man is mistakenly given the heart of a dog....
A woman who can cure or kill with a touch...

Our bodies are usually wonderful, often ridiculous, and occasionally horrific. In these funny and macabre stories Daniel explores this bag of bones we inhabit, in all its absurd, bizarre, visceral splendour.

This is not for the squeamish!

No stranger to Crick Crack Club audiences, Daniel is one of the UK’s most popular storytellers. He has the timing of a comedian and the insight of a poet.

'TO EXPERIENCE DANIEL MORDEN IN FULL FLIGHT IS AN AMAZING THING' Ian MacMillan
'FULL OF SUSPENSE AND DRAMA' National Theatre

Ages: 14+

RUNNING TIME: 90mins plus interval

CONTENT WARNING: This performance contains macabre humour and descriptions of viscera, mutilation, death and bodily functions, contextualised within a paradigm of mythic narrative, archetype and metaphor.
