This is a bit of a different project. I recently became fascinated with the wonderfully weird medieval cycle plays. The plays are by turns reverent, hilariously bawdy, touching, didactic, and messy. They are highly localized to the town that they were staged in, and the way they were produced – divorced from time and space, serialized out of order – is as post-modern as anything we do in theatre today.
To get my head around these bizarre artifacts I wrote a snippet of my own cycle play, which I’ve attached here. I’ve also uploaded my bibliography and a short response to the project.
Thanks for reading and, as always, if you want to stage the play just do me a favor and ask first.
