GAWAIN

TITLE LOOOOONGGreen-Cathedral-Matt-Austin 10edit smallGAWAIN & THE GREEN KNIGHT has now been performed at EXETER PHOENIX, EXETER CATHEDRAL as part of IGNITE FESTIVAL, POLTIMORE HOUSE and ESCOT PARK as part of BEAUTIFUL DAYS. Featuring some energetic and eccentric acting, stunning make-up design, parkour, Middle English rapping and one awesome puppet, GAWAIN has delighted audiences young and old alike!

Yuletide at Camelot and King Arthur’s famous Christmas Party is in full swing. That is, until the gargantuan Green Knight gatecrashes King Arthur’s party and lays down a fearsome challenge! Only Gawain, youngest and most untested of Arthur’s warriors, is bold enough to accept it, and partake in a fearsome game of heads…

An impressive production that will live long in the memory.
Gordon Richardson, Express & Echo

Brilliant and immersive play… Like a child in a fantasy where they are transported into the TV suddenly there I was with a seat at King Arthur’s round table!
Jenna Richards, Phonic FM

The puppet looked absolutely amazing! The whole performance just wove together really smoothly…

Just as Summer time is flourishing on the earth, FOUR OF SWORDS desires to lead you into the underworld of BEER QUARRY CAVES for their own unique and blood-curdling version of The Scottish!

This subterranean production is a reprisal of FOUR OF SWORDS’ hit 2014/16 show, and presents the Witches as Viking priestesses and goddesses of Destiny who guide the audience through the labyrinthine caverns of Macbeth’s homicidal ambition. The show features Shamanic techniques, haunting live music, gruesome film projections, Icelandic chanting, a splash or two of gore and even some Highland sword-dancing.

The company deserve huge applause – there were strong performances all round with too many stand-out moments to describe.
Anna Marks, Remotegoat

The connected caves – complete with bats – echo with a constant drip-drip-drip, perfectly conjuring the chill dankness of a medieval Scottish castle.
Belinda Dillon, Exeunt Magazine

As with previous FOUR OF SWORDS productions, audiences will be standing and walking for the duration of the 1 hour 15 min show. Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car! Please be advised that this show is too creepy for under 11s.

Dates: 18th-22nd July 2018  Times: 6.45pm & 8.45pm  Price: £15
