Lent Week 2
Culhwch and Olwen is a pantomime adaptation of a medieval Welsh text in which Culhwch, a Welsh prince, is cursed to only love one woman: Olwen, daughter of Ysbaddaden, Chief Giant. Ysbaddaden does not want his daughter to marry Culhwch and sets the prince impossible tasks to prevent them from marrying. However, with the help of King Arthur Culhwch completes the tasks and the two lovers marry. In this updated and pantomimed version of an already hilarious text we roam Cambria-Ridge, the best university in all of Medieval Wales, alongside a host of pantomime characters including muddling knights, lovesick queens, and the true bane of any student's life: acadmic rigour. But don’t take our word for it, come along and watch!
