Is this your first time to Bedfringe?
It is our 2nd time! We were here in 2021 with our production of BOUDICA and were delighted to walk away with the ‘SPIRIT OF THE FRINGE AWARD’. We performed in the Quarry Theatre Garden to a wonderful audience who gallantly stuck it out through a rain shower, which in fairness, made the Roman versus Briton battle scene extra dramatic.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2021 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
After managing, against all odds, to take a small yet mighty tour of BOUDICA across the country in 2021, we have been hard at work. We have created site-specific story walks, worked closely with young people to devise their own response to our show, upgraded our set and written a brand new play. So now here we are, taking THE GREEN KNIGHT & BOUDICA on a ‘not so small this time’ but ‘definitely still very mighty’ UK tour. We have learned along the way that there is a surprising amount you can do with four performers, some wishful thinking and a lot of duct tape. We are yet to learn that we should stop writing plays with triple the amount of characters as actors, but everyone loves a speedy costume change right? Right!?
Tell us about your show.
THE GREEN KNIGHT is a raucous family show based on the Arthurian legend. We follow the treacherous, and at times somewhat baffling journey of Sir Gawain and her loyal steed Gringolet as they search for The Green Chapel and discover what it truly means to be a knightly knight. You can expect some colourful characters, some surprisingly decent sword fighting and a lot of laughs. Even if we say so ourselves, which we do.
What should your audience see at Bedfringe after they’ve seen your show?
We of course will be recommending the best type of theatre (in our opinion): Children’s theatre. Therefore go and check out: The Fearsome Giant, Where The Lost Socks Go and The Munch Mission!
