Tonight Riel Theatre presents a comedy set in the filth, stench and grime of the middle ages, with some nice music.

Sir John Woodstock — James Fleet
Lady Anne Woodstock, John’s teenage daughter — Susan Earl
Lady Charlotte, Anne’s best friend — Ingrid Oliver
Master Henry Woodstock, John’s 13 year old son — Steven Kynman
John’s household servant Thomas, forever inventing medieval versions of modern innovations — Jonathan Kydd
Sir William De Warenne, knight errant and scourge of the Levant, voted top knight by Esquire magazine — Neil Dudgeon
Cardinal Duncan, Sir William’s closet‐homosexual sidekick — Jonathan Kydd
Sam Tree, Anne’s peasant heart‐throb — Toby Ross‐Bryant
Billy Bagshot, local standup comedian — Steven Kynman

Episode 3: The village pub acquires two new mysterious barmaids as Anne and Charlotte plot to ensnare Sam Tree. Sir William De Warenne gets in touch with his feminine side whilst Duncan gets in touch with his masculine one.

Episode 4: Sir John tires of acting as the local magistrate, and hands the job to Sir William who, having realized that Sam stands between him and Anne, uses his position to condemn Sam to death. Unfortunately the scaffold is built using Thomas’s latest invention — the flat pack.
