Violence. nobility. passion and valour
It’s a big old tale that Wee Stories has decided to take on for its latest production. Full of grand gestures and mighty deeds, it may well be one of the largest there is. So how is a diminutive. three-member theatre company with a greater familiarity with the small-scale to tell the tale in all its mythical glory?
For a start, take it right down to earth. All the pomp is blown right out of the lake with a double act between boyishly charming Andy Cannon and the more BFG~|ike lain Johnstone involving mobile phones and lots of cornflake boxes. The cereal cartons become books, helmets. thrones and castles in Blue Peter style, but these low-key, slapstick beginnings are the gentle foil for exploring dark, powerful and moving aspects of the Arthur legend.
Andy and Iain are joined on stage by piano-playing David Trouton. and their passion for communicating the myth enthrals the audience right from the off. Each shift of tone carries everyone along so that in a stroke they have you laughing at a mobile phone gag and then suddenly listening intently to a sinister tale of a black. scratching raven told by candlelight. The long- developed dynamic between all three performers holds these many components together so that you feel you‘re in safe. trusted hands. And then. like magic from behind the buffooning and clowning, an ethereal voice breaks through and a figure is illuminated to evoke a true sense of timeless mysticism. Alyth McCormack's haunting voice transfixes, and when woven among clarsach. cello and oboe. it sends little shivers right through, but is just as quickly dismissed by a raucous call from the floor. This brilliant use of live music is combined with projections of illustrations from medieval and Pre- Raphaelite sources - ornate, lavish, beautiful knights. maidens, dragons and swords, allowing the fantasies to be indulged for a little while longer. before
bringing you back home.
Part of Wee Stories‘ big idea is to show how folk legends are not set in stone. to use a timely phrase; how they are all interpretations and variations on a theme which belong to everyone as a shared mythical history. Though a laudable aim, there are a few times when this message feels slightly laboured and are the only points at which the otherwise compelling piece of theatre drags its heels 3 little. But as a complete work fusing drama, narrative, comedy, music and visuals, the Arthur story is carried off with all its violence, nobility, passion and valour with great skill by these fair knights of the round
table. (Ruth Hedges)
