The Golden Ass heading to Circa!

Circa Theatre

Michael Hurst brings a glorious dose of masterful storytelling to Circa Theatre with his latest show The Golden Ass from 20 April!

Coming at you full force via ancient Rome, this free-wheeling adaptation is laugh-out-loud funny and subversively philosophical.

The original, written almost 2,000 years ago by Apuleius, is the only Latin novel to survive in its entirety. In this riotous adaptation Hurst takes his audience on a wild ride, bringing a fresh and funny take on this fantastical, hilarious and sometimes terrifying tale.

The Golden Ass is a tale of epic proportions, and a powerful plea for empathy in a world gone mad.
