Yesterday, we went to see the Mummers street play in Otterbourne, Hampshire.
It is a very old and traditional folk play and depicts King George slaying the dragon, Turkish knights and other adversaries. It was good fun to watch and the costumes were very colourful.
The revival of the injured knight by the doctor with his magic potion was entertaining. I was touched by the community spirit on display with people gathered on the street singing along with the actors.
The slain knight fell flat on the road right next to our dog Monty and I was concerned Monty might lick the knight’s face. Fortunately nothing happened probably because he couldn’t see a face to lick.
Here is a video clip showing you The Mummers Christmas play in the Otterbourne village, in 2010.
