A C12 adventure writer, a C21 audience
ExploreTheArch reopened with an outdoor production inspired by the lai folk tales of C12 adventure writer, Marie de France, regarded as our earliest female author.
Marie de France trailblazed as a best-selling author offering a kaleidoscope of heroes — a youth uninterested in love, a woman who says something she regrets and a steady partner who is a closet werewolf three days a week – all pushing boundaries to honour their unconventional selves in adventures, sometimes successfully, sometimes not.
Outdoor promenade performances with socially distanced, sheltered seating viewed from around the outside of the extraordinary ExploreTheArch venue, Archer Lodge, in Charles Road, St Leonards on Sea, TN38 OQX. First run and extension week had sold-out performances.
