A one-woman storytelling show with original music.
Written and performed by Jackie Singer
Directed by Matilda Leyser
This is PREVIEW followed by Q and A to launch the show on a small tour!
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
