$25 - $45

Michael Hurst’s new solo show The Golden Ass comes at you full force by way of ancient Rome & 'The White Lotus' - a fresh and funny take on human foibles through the ages.

Freely adapting from the notorious original written by Lucius Apuleius almost 2,000 years ago, Hurst takes audiences on a wild ride as ambitious author Lucius undergoes a magical transformation and learns the perils of getting what you ask for. Turned into an ass, Lucius experiences the world anew in hilarious and harrowing adventures, learning more as a donkey than he ever knew as a man.

A dazzling journey through a timeless world of witches, bandits, goddesses, circuses, slaves and sex, The Golden Ass is laugh-out-loud funny and subversively philosophical. A powerful plea for empathy in a world gone mad, as old as time and as fresh as tomorrow. 

“Michael Hurst’s Golden Ass is a sensation! Don’t miss out”
