The SwanWing team performed over the weekend at the Battle Medieval Mystery Fair with a new play written by playwright Saskia Wesnigt Wood entitled 'Battle: A Modern Mystery Play'. The raving reviews we've received are all the encouragement we need to have plenty of confidence for our Edinburgh performances in August!
“Battle” The story of 1066 told through the eyes of its women.
This modern mystery play with three women and a man is never more relevant than now. When all you have is your acting skills, even as a refugee, you will put up your stage and perform your show. Travelling thespians are fleeing with their wagon. They stop and tell their stories. In war, how do mothers, queens, wives, daughters and actors cope? They gather their skirts and they soldier on.
"This fabulous group of actors kept us entertained in Battle last night. A great play based around William & Harry through the ages with nods to the Battle of Hastings throughout. It was funny and moving and wonderfully acted and written. Go see them if you get a chance, they are ace!"
The show will now tour to Edinburgh Fringe in August 2022!
