This was a 'pot luck' booking as the timing fit with other shows already booked, and I am so glad I chose it!
It was the highlight of the day for my friend, who came up from Newcastle to 'fringe', and me.
Funny and enthusiastic she kept the audience enthralled with her excellent retelling of this Arthurian tale.

This is a superlative piece of storytelling theatre, beautifully written and performed with winning charm and delicate sensitivity by Debbie Cannon. As a big fan of the Gawain story already, this was everything I hoped it would be, freshly enlivened by the power of the mysterious lady at the centre of the story being given voice. I thought it was just perfect; a gem, like the jewels she describes adorning the hair of the ladies of Camelot. Totally enchanting and highly recommended.

Dr Debbie Cannon is a wonderful writer & performer, and her one-woman Green Knight is a treat for anyone with any kind of interest in Arthurian epic storytelling. She had her audience spellbound from the get-go, and even conjured up some lightning & thunder to make it a special evening.
