Saturday, September 7th, don’t miss: “New Age Gawain and the Bungee-jumping Wildman Green Knight!”

Edgecomb’s comedic adaptation has Arthurian knights running for their therapists faster than you can say “Litigation!” Tom Megan’s score and Margot Chamberlain’s inspired harp accompaniment provide a lush atmosphere of sound as we take a fun-filled journey along the ‘road less traveled by.’

About the Residency: Diane is thrilled to represent the storytelling art as Storyteller in Residence at the International Storytelling Center for the week of September 2nd – September 7th. Each day at 2:00 pm there will be a matinee performance featuring some of Diane’s most beloved pieces. Accompanied by Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain, the matinees will feature award-winning pieces such as Diane’s rendition of the famous Irish love story “Deirdre of the Sorrows” and her comedic upbeat spoof of New Ageism: “New Age Gawain and the Bungee-Jumping, Wild-man Green Knight.” Diane and Margot will also present: “In the Groves” a story and music exploration of the world of trees and “The Language of Flowers” with folkloric story and song about flowers through the ages.
