Details

When, one New Year’s Day, festivities at the court of King Arthur are interrupted by the arrival of a mysterious Green Knight, and thrown into confusion by the extraordinary challenge he lays down, nobody, least of all the fearless Gawain, is prepared for the terrifying consequences of taking the supernatural stranger at his word. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight tells the story of a young knight’s epic quest through the changing seasons to keep his appointment with fate. It’s a tale of temptation, romance and chivalry, shot through with rough-knuckled action and tall-tale humour, brought to life with the help of puppetry and live music. A six hundred year old poetic classic, but as fresh and startling as ever, critically acclaimed New Perspectives Theatre Company is delighted to present the first ever staging of the powerful new translation from award-winning poet, playwright and broadcaster, Simon Armitage.
