John of Beverley, Hairy Hermit

  • University of Lausanne Lausanne Switzerland (map)

Queynte Laydies have been flexing their acting chops ready for a performance of Medieval miracle play Historie van Jan van Beverley or John of Beverley. It tells the story of rogue hermit John who, after raping and murdering his sister, finds forgiveness from God by going about on "hand and foot like a beast" and growing an excessive amount of body hair. Máirín takes the starring role and does so with aplomb. 

We will be jetting off to Switzerland to perform at the University of Lausanne as part of a two-day workshop entitled 'Emotion and Medieval Media'. The wonderful Professor Elisabeth Dutton (University of Fribourg) will direct.
