A tale of Epic Proportions

Coming at you full force via ancient Rome, Michael Hurst’s free-wheeling adaptation of the notorious original is a wild ride through a timeless world of bandits, goddesses, witches, circuses, sandals, slaves and sex.

Ambitious young author Lucius travels to a strange town to research his book on Witchcraft. Full of his own importance, he is made to undergo a magical transformation that teaches him the perils of getting what you ask for.

Turned to an ass, he now experiences the world anew in a string of hilarious and harrowing adventures, learning more as a donkey than he ever did as a man.

Laugh-out-loud funny and subversively philosophical, The Golden Ass is a powerful plea for empathy in a world gone mad.

“An ass-stonishing tour de force…riveting, salacious and very funny.” – Mike Mather, Stuff

‘A marvellous, skilful performance. This is a show to watch out for.” – Charlotte Grimshaw, NZ Listener
