Written and performed by Tristan Bernays

Soho Theatre + UK Tour 2014


‘WOW… one of the most action-packed dynamic shows of the Fringe.’
★★★★ The Scotsman


Ever wanted to share a pint with a god?


Meet John Barleycorn: drinker, party animal, ancient god.


John awakes in the modern day after thousands of years to find a grey and lifeless world filled with grey and lifeless people. He thinks it’s time they remember what it’s like to have a little fun.


A one-man epic where ancient myths collide with the modern world.


‘MUST SEE SHOW! …The piece is delivered with such energy, such force and charm, that it carries its audience along on a wave of words.’
The Stage


‘A seductive, earthy myth for modern times told with eloquence and passion.’
★★★★ A Younger Theatre
