“…The loveliest lady there
on him glanced with eyes of grey:
that he found anyone more fair
in truth might no man say…”
– J.R.R Tolkien
#3 La Belle Dame Sans Merci
“In which the quest for the riddle of the heart fails
and Gawain sets out to meet his doom at the Green Chapel…
en route he comes across the ‘Castille Diablo’ deep in the heart of the Green-Wood
and there the mysterious Lord and Lady Verdant involve him in another three-fold game…”
The eyes have been dotted, the tees have been crossed, to all intents and purposes the ‘donkey work’ of writing the five dramas for next year’s April Workshop: Leaf and Flame- The Foliate Man has been done. There will undoubtedly be minor changes between now and then, there always are and these are usually flagged up in the communal read throughs which will take place at our three remaining monthly meetings.
There is still an awful lot of work to be done in terms of music, props, costuming and the presentations which are used throughout to properly set the tone and theme for the weekend…
But more importantly what we really need now is… people!
So, what are you waiting for?
Weekend of 22-24 April, 2016.
Great Hucklow, Derbyshire Dales. England.
and a special appearance by Mister Fox.
