In a frigid Christmas landscape in a Civil War year, a young Union
soldier goes after a horse thief, is shot in a mysterious chapel in the
Maryland woods, and wakes to an eerie delirium involving an innocent
young girl, her seductive and dangerous mother, a cackling, half mad
crone, and a bloody hunter sharpening an ax. An American retelling of an
ironic medieval masterpiece, this haunted Gothic play of desire, past
betrayal and murder is an intriguing addition to the Pendragon series.
In Green Man & Other Plays.
"Dreamlike and haunting, Pageant Wagon's production of Green Man is a FRIGID Festival highlight. A bold production with a taut ensemble and a shoestring budget, it's a fine example of fringe theatre."— NY Theatre.com (NY Frigid Festival, at the Red Room, NYC, 2010)
