Fools in the wasteland. Cracks in the kingdom. Warriors sleeping under the hill. How to heal the wounds? How to speak truth? Is it really magic, or just knowing where to look? Fragments of Arthurian legend that reflect the times we are living through now. Woven together with song and hope and humanity.

“Such a generous offering – to bring us these ancient tales with so much compassion for our current state.”

“A deeply healing evening in the midst of all the grief, destruction, subterfuge and courage of our times.”

“It was a wonderful show – weaving in all the best stories, Malory, well-chosen snippets from Tennyson… loved it.”

“A very special evening.”

Lisa, Katy and Ronnie are performance storytellers living in the South West, with roots that stretch across the islands of Britain. They have told tales in pubs and clubs, at international festivals and wild firesides, inside burial chambers and on Dartmoor tors. This is their first collaboration.
