“Do you mind if we tell you some stories?”
Remythed is a storytelling show that takes the myths and legends from the backgrounds of its five performers and reshapes, reforms, and retells them.
From Sheherazade to Anansi by way of Lady Godiva, figures from myth and legend appear in ways you have never seen them before in an hour long show full of insight, dreams and wisdom that’ll leave you joyful, a bit tearful and questioning every story you’ve ever been told.
Queer people have been erased from our inherited stories for too long. LGBTQIA+ people have always been here. And it's time our collective myths reflected that fact. Rather than the pain and trauma that is often the focus, Remythed delights in a joyful reimagination of what queer history could like.
Remythed is Bet’n Lev Theatre’s first production. The show first premiered at VAULT 2023 where it won “Show of the Week” and received critical acclaim. Developed from an original idea by Bet’n Lev Artistic Directors, Joel Samuels (Sugar Coat, Southwark Playhouse) and Roann Hassani McCloskey (Hakawatis, The Globe) with Lucy Rosyln (Orlando, Brits Off Broadway), Emile Clarke (Crimes on Centre Court, Bath Theatre Royal) and Ishmael Kirby (Drag King Cyro and lead singer of punk band Dream Nails).
