I am honoured to have been chosen to perform at Offbeat Festival of new theatre in Oxford – an opportunity to take my small act of magic into the heart of Oxford. Rhiannon Unbridled takes the story of the Celtic Goddess Rhiannon out of its well-preserved Welsh Medieval manuscript in the Bodleian Library, and wrestles with it. Jackie’s stories of her girlhood fascination with horses, and developing relationships with the opposite sex are interlocked with chapters of Rhiannon’s life, until the narratives collide in a need to rescue both modern woman and ancient goddess from the forces that bridle them.
Praise from the audience at Oxford Storytelling Festival
“As Jackie freed herself, unleashed and unbridled, I felt as elated as the rest of the audience. I urge you to experience this bold, brave and original work for yourself.” Marion McCartney, Author & Activist
