"...theatre as it should be: a physical and intellectual thrill, a challenge and, at times, a puzzle."
A wild satirical tale about the effects of wealth and power on modern-day society.
Devised with a group of young people from the James Shield Project, Gorbals, the show tells the story of Lucius, a Brazilian storyteller and magician, lost in the city of Glasgow. The Golden Ass was performed at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow in December 2000.
