Christmas Barnstormer


Gawain, nephew to King Arthur, rides out in golden armour on his white horse.

His mission is suicidal: to seek beheading by the axe of a murderous giant.

His journey is long and cold; he is constantly ambushed …

but the greatest danger comes from his own heart.

Gawain is a C14th alliterative poem, itself based on an ancient Celtic story. It has themes of magic, honour, heroism tinged with absurdity, and has at its heart a dysfunctional family, where a wrong done in one generation festers into revenge upon the next.

Sarah Rundle’s prose re-telling of this epic includes songs, humour, and contemporary references: the etiquette of Christmas presents, gasmen, Downton Abbey, Powerpoint, and gossip mags.
