    The Stag King. The Ancient Celtic God of the Hunt. Half man, half stag, and halfcut most of the time since his business collapsed AGAIN. 

    Queer artist Liberty Martin met the Ancient Celtic God of the Hunt at an online drag workshop in 2020. This performance lecture / drag show explores the varied nature of Stag King's jobs, before and since the Agricultural Revolution, including: Revered God, Stag Night Entertainer and, most recently, Drag King. 

    This is a show about how we survive and find meaning in our lives while many of our established sources of identity disappear. As the climate crisis threatens our way of life, and AI has the potential to rule out whole professions, what can we learn from a sexy cervitaur whose working life peaked in the palaeolithic era?

    Supported by The Rosemary Branch Theatre and Camden People's Theatre.

    "With her warm stage persona Liberty lulls us into a fascinating world which she then mischievously turns on its head, delighting and provoking us into more nuanced thought."
    Haley McGee, Solo Show Creation Lab
    "It made my laugh. It me cry. And it gave me hope. A gloriously silly and clever delve into knowing who we are. 5 stars."
