The Crick Crack Club – Grownup Fairy Tales
By Hannah Phillips
The Crick Crack Club took Valentine’s into their own hands on Tuesday, as the storytelling aficionados hosted Nick Hennessey, Nell Phoenix and Tim Ralphs for an evening of weird and wonderful, grown-up fairytales at Rich Mix.
And this was certainly not your usual Valentine’s Day affair – don’t be fooled by the heart-shaped decorations. Instead, boxes of chocolates were replaced by cheese – Nell quite rightly argued that cheese is a key ingredient in love – dandelions replaced red roses and Cinderella came face-to-face with King Lear (turns out meat and salt really are soulmates). Love, eh?
Unscripted, frolicsome and, at times, genuinely touching. A bit like that funny thing called love, actually.
