The Guthrie WorldStage Series presents a Kneehigh production of TRISTAN & YSEULT adapted and directed by Emma Rice, writers: Anna Maria Murphy& Carl Grose.
This season marks the triumphant return of the acclaimed Kneehigh Theatre – best-known for their wildly popular and evocative adaptation of Brief Encounter – to present the celebrated show that catapulted them onto the national stage. King Mark of Cornwall is at war; he rules with his head not his heart. But he hasn’t counted on falling head over heels for his enemy’s sister Yseult or the arrival of the enigmatic Tristan. Tristan & Yseult is the original tale of forbidden desires, broken hearts and the agony of choosing one human being over another. Kneehigh’s production blends comedy, live music, grand passion and tender truths in an irresistible night of love. In a five-star review, the U.K.’s Guardian raved, "If this show doesn't make you fall in love with theatre, there's no potion on Earth that can help you."
