Martin Shaw

Wednesday 11th October 2023
Location: Cleere’s Bar and Theatre
Medicine House is the enchanting new show from award-winning storyteller Martin Shaw. Stories are a kind of medicine, and each night Shaw decides which remedy to administer. Over an evening Shaw moves through electrifying renditions of fairy tales, Irish myths and accounts of his own life, including four years living in a tent exploring the last outposts of the Celtic landscape. Hilarious, moving and improvisational, no night is quite the same as the last.

Martin Shaw is an award-winning storyteller, writer and mythologist. He has toured internationally numerous times and created the Oral Tradition and Mythic Life courses at Stanford University. His most recent book Bardskull was Book of the Day in The Guardian, The Sunday Times describing it as “rich & transgressive.”
