World renowned for his playful performances, allow Ben Haggarty to lure you into the richly metaphorical world of a full-blooded fairytale for grown-ups.
Dark, beautiful and startling by turn, this is a story of dreams, initiations and the repayment of debts – a journey from innocence to experience, which delves into a disconcertingly familiar narrative world, complete with bizarre marriages and strange companions.
Ben Haggarty performs with infectious charm and ease – fierce, fast paced, and unashamedly magical. This is a place where rules aren’t broken lightly.
