"Michael Hurst is magnificent ... At once vulnerable and flawed, hedonistic, enigmatic, wily, and strangely likable.” - Theatreview

Freely adapted from the notorious original by Apuleius, this brand new solo show is the story of Lucius - a young man driven by sexual desire and insatiable curiosity who is accidentally transformed into a donkey. Uh-oh!

What follows is a fantastical series of misadventures in a wicked world of witches, bandits, virgins, cultists, slaves, circuses, soldiers, pastry-cooks, prostitutes and priests.

Marvellously, sidesplittingly ridiculous, The Golden Ass is the original donkey show, inspiring such literary giants as Shakespeare, Boccaccio, Cervantes, Rabelais and Keats. It remains today a powerful plea for empathy in a world gone mad.

With music and direction from acclaimed composer John Gibson, and performance by renowned storyteller Michael Hurst, this modern take on one of the great classics will be a rollicking ride, well worth the fare.

Rating: Adult themes. Not suitable for children.

Tickets are available from The Urban Market, King Street, Pukekohe.
