Fairytales for Grown-ups: Beneath the Eyes of Baron Samedi - Livestream

Online streamed event

The Crick Crack Club presents Baron Samedi, storytelling by Jan Blake. Livestream from The Story Museum's Woodshed Theatre.

This is a livestream event.

Baron Samedi - master of the dead, giver of life, guardian of the past. In top hat and tails, his nose plugged with cotton wool - he drinks, he smokes, he swears, he tells filthy jokes. When someone dies, he decides whether or not to dig their grave, greet their soul and lead them to the underworld. The domain he watches over is shot through with rum and rags, good food and poverty, gods and transforming beasts.... in other words - glorious voudon.

Storytelling queen, Jan Blake, journeys through the unpredictable, ambiguous & beguiling dreamscape of Haitian and Louisiana folktales. This is an invitation for the ancestors to come down from the stars and listen at the windows.... Grab your gris-gris and join them!

Run time: 100 minutes (plus an interval)

Suitable: adults 16+

Livestream tickets also include a separate link to a recording of the show that will be emailed out after the performance and accessible for 7 days.
