Roll up! Attend the ribald antics of the jongleur, descendent of the great medieval buffoons who scratched at the consciences of Europe, delighting the crowds, infuriating the powerful. Meet head-on his comic cavalcade of rich and poor, angels and drunkards, soldiers, peasants, cheats, popes and donkeys. For the jongleur is a wise fool. He comes to town with a dangerous gospel. He slips the cork from a thrillingly raucous old bladder full of stories that explode with love of humanity, rant against oppression and a grin that goes all the way to Calvary and back. In this fresh adaptation, Andy Gray brings to life a rich cast of characters taking swipes in passing at modern politics and world religion. In this extravaganza Mr Gray is forced to play all of the parts because of the meanness of the management.
