A one-woman storytelling show with original music. Written and performed by Jackie Singer. Directed by Matilda Leyser.
Rhiannon Unbridled takes the story of the Celtic Horse Goddess Rhiannon out of its well-preserved Welsh Medieval manuscript in the Bodleian Library, and wrestles with it. Jackie’s stories of her girlhood fascination with horses, and developing relationships with the opposite sex are interlocked with chapters of Rhiannon’s life, until the narratives collide in a need to rescue both modern woman and ancient goddess from the forces that bridle them.
Ages 10+. £10. In the Burton Taylor Studio.
