I am delighted to be joining a stellar line-up of speakers and perfomers at Seed Festival this year. I will be offering a slightly abridged version of the show in the cafe at 11am, along with a workshop at another point in the festival.
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
