MUMMERS PLAY


We perform a seasonal Mummers Folk Play usually before Christmas. It may or may not feature this notable cast of characters:
  • Old Father Christmas
  • St. George
  • Turkish Knight
  • Doctor
  • Beelzebub
  • Misrule
  • Horse
  • Dragon
  • Princess
  • Witch
  • Mistletoe
  • Jingles the Horse
  • Groom
  • Little Johnny Jack
The play is filled with disguise and symbolism. It's theme is death and revival. At face value it can be viewed as a piece of rough entertainment while others find deeper esoteric meanings. It's all good fun and the audiences really enjoy it.
