About Mr Sandmann

Dark, unsettling and intensely magical, join world-class storyteller Ben Haggarty as he slips behind the lights into the dark side of fairground. Via freak-show and moonshine bar, ready yourself for an alarming journey through the ambivalent mythology of the Sandman. Marilyn Monroe is a target in a shooting gallery; the moon-landing is more than a side-show and the truth behind Warhol’s Silver Dream Factory is gradually revealed. Flirting with Americana, drawing on urban legend, fairytale, myth and folklore, and paying oblique homage to Heinrich Von Kleist, ETA Hoffman, Hans Andersen and Nick Cave, Ben Haggarty surrenders his sanity to the magnetic pull of a ravenous moon. Age Recommendation: 16+
