THE SKRIKER
13-16 Feb
Tickets: Only £6 for all Uni staff & students

‘Unwholesome, hypnotic, and born in the dark’ (Independent), THE SKRIKER is a spellbinding epic that blends English folktales with modern urban life to tell the story of an ancient shape-shifting fairy and death portent who haunts two young mothers in its search for love and revenge. THE SKRIKER brings with it a multitude of monsters until London is swarming with enticing and angry creatures that have burst from the underworld.

Macunaíma (Makuna-Eema)
13-16 Feb
Tickets: Only £6 for all Uni staff & students

The original saga followed the journey of our scoundrel hero, Macunaíma, from the Amazon to São Paulo, in search of his lost magical amulet, now in the hands of a giant Peruvian cannibal entrepreneur. (Think of a South American Lewis Carroll on acid narrating the misadventure of a hero without morals!)
