Inspired by tales of Sir Lancelot and Robin Hood, plucky heroine Wilhelmina disguises herself as a knight in home-made armour and sets off on her farm donkey Rosina on a chivalric quest to rescue her freedom-fighting dad from Baron Boris Boris von Bummelkrackenhofer's deepest darkest dungeon. Will knows how to stand up to tyrants but nothing has prepared her for when Boris's daughter Edeltraut falls madly in love with her and wants to be rescued too.
The play promises madcap physical comedy, capers around castles, cod medieval dancing, damsels in distress, a ‘Punch and Judy’ show on the battlements, a jaw-biting joust to the death with life size kinetic steeds, and lots of original catchy musical numbers.
The production features Theatre Fideri Fidera’s rich mix of storytelling, comedy, physical theatre, music and song, combined with commedia del-arte style slapstick, buffoonery, heroes fighting against tyranny and injustice and satirical digs at contemporary political figures.
