Gawain and the Green Knight
Thu 01 Jan 1970 - Thu 01 Jan 1970
7pm & 8.45pm
It’s Christmas at Camelot. King Arthur is partying hard with his knights. The King announces that this year he won’t start eating until he has seen or heard tell of something truly wondrous. At that moment, the gargantuan Green Knight gatecrashes the hall and lays down a fearsome challenge. The Knights of the Round Table shrink in fright. All except for Sir Gawain, youngest and most untested of Arthur’s warriors, who swallows his fear, steps forward, and accepts the invitation to partake in a fearsome game of heads…
Four of Swords is proud to present a new adaptation of this classic Arthurian legend, originally recorded by an unknown author in an Early Middle English manuscript. This traditional fable will be retold using theatre, film, live music and one awesome puppet.
This is a promenade piece of theatre therefore audiences will be standing throughout the majority of the show. Some action takes place outside so please wrap up warm.
Four of Swords is fresh from its success with Jekyll & Hyde at Poltimore House, another new adaptation which secured Arts Council funding, widespread local press coverage and was sold out for its entire run.
‘Theres only one problem with intimate and almost tangible theatre like this, the kind that which surrounds you, whisks you up and takes you with it you wont want to go back to sitting in an auditorium again.’
EXPRESS & ECHO
‘Unmissable. Metamorphosis, murder & mayhem
This show is a feast of skills and surprises.’
