The Wagga Wagga City Library and Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre presents:
Written and Performed by Finn O'Branagáin + Scott Sandwich
The Epic is the theatre of way-out tales as told by two irreverent and passionate storytellers. Finn and Scott take us on a journey of the imagination from the cradle of civilisation to the story of the wooden horse, with heroes ranging from Gilgamesh to Vin Diesel. The Epic lovingly takes the stories you think you know and asks them to tell us another.
The Epic is slam poetry without too much earnestness, it’s storytelling without being condescending. It’s all the best bits out of our historical literature libraries mixed in with little bits of pop culture. The Epic is a comparative studies lecture if the teachers wanted to re-enact everything with wide eyes and flailing arms. It’s a political discussion about cultural appropriation and ownership that isn’t pointing fingers…
Dash back to the beginning as we retell and unpick myths, epic texts and really good stories from around the globe. The Epic plays easily in a library or community centre but is equally at home in a theatre with all the trimmings . There's something for everyone in this sparky adventure through time.
The Epic is fun. Some of the stories are outrageous, some are freaky, all of them are EPIC: these are amazing and strange stories you’ll be sharing long after the show.
