From Merlin to Malory, Camelot to Excalibur, Morgana le Fey has reigned supreme as the fiendish counter Queen to King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Playing by her own rules, she foils their quests, dismantles the fragrant towers of each princess and wreaks general havoc from the safety of the shadows.
Tracking down the spaces in between her many myths, internationally renowned performers and storytellers, Xanthe Gresham and Nick Hennessey use music, games and story to check-mate medieval misogyny. The result? Thoroughly Modern Morgan, lightning rod of Avalon, is centre stage at last.
Directed by Juliet Forster, York Theatre Royal and commissioned with support from The Crick Crack Club.
