THE FATE WE BRING OURSELVES by Ben Haggarty, storyteller

Take the tether, untie the knot and let the beast RUN!

Described by TIMEOUT as being “. brutal, unsettling and bloody brilliant," Ben Haggarty returns to Storytelling Cafe. Join Ben as he presents three remixed, extended and explicit Greek myths. Expect sex with Zeus, twice born gods, formidable goddesses and some nasty clashes between naive mortals and uppity deities... These are stories which you thought you knew – but here, you will find them at their most terrifying and truly awesome glory. This is world-class storytelling and promises to be an evening of dark, magical and provocative storytelling. You have been warned.

For adult audiences (16+)

Running time: 80mins approx

BEN HAGGARTY is one of the world's leading contemporary storytellers, renowned for his passionate and physical performances. He tours widely, is a much sought after teacher and the artistic director of the legendary Crick Crack Club in London.
