Medieval Tales – Dame Fortune’s Wheel and the Three Estates
…with Dave Tonge
Saturday 3rd August, 2pm @ John O’Gaunts Hall, Canford School, Nr Wimborne
Dame Fortune’s Wheel and the Three Estates is a storytelling session about the three ‘classes’ of men and women from long ago; those who worked, those who prayed and those who fought.
The session vividly illustrates the ups and downs of people’s lives as they rode upon Fortune’s Wheel, sometimes enjoying good luck, but also suffering many a misfortune.
The performance promises a compelling mix of comic tales, interwoven with crafty and relevant riddles. Tale telling that brings the long past into the here and now and includes stories about lazy lads, fat friars, ghostly monks, boys who become birds and also the legend of the brave knight, Gawain, who takes himself a very ugly wife!
Suitable for adults and accompanied children age 8+.
