Posted:Hey,

I was just wondering if there was any Mummers on here?

I am a member of the magnificent magic mummers.
At the moment we do St George (of course)
The story of Rhiannon
The story of how Opals are formed.

Plus a couple of us are writing new scripts for the summer season.

Posted:i've never heard of mummers . what are they and what do they do ?

when the body is happy the mind smiles

to live a single day and hear a good teaching is better than to live a hundred without hearing such teaching

and everything is measured by the hole it leaves behind

Posted:Nope. RSA does not do the whole re-enactment thing. Except for some battles.

Posted:I had some mummers come into the pub I worked at once.

It was cringe to the max.

Posted:Yes some can be rather cringe worth. At a local pagan convention that go to I came acrross a similar act. There was one guy though (the main story teller) who was just out of this world.

Posted:Eeek being from the UK and being a medieval re-enactor Im kind of nervous over this post. Ok here goes..
I dont bitch or anything but Im the only authentic medieval jester Ive ever seen. weavesmiley

Oh by the way I also am a knight. Hit and get hit by steal weapons sometimes full contact. nana
We kind of do street theatre but its all spur of the moment theres no scrips. Personally I find because you are always this person it works better for the audience than any lines Ive ever been given.

Sorry should probably be posting this on the drunk too much page. How many creative anachronism people know how to start a fire? Me I know how to make Char cloth. old

As for the medieval fairs Pick a time Please Do. Ive seen them and great very entertaining and so wrong. They seem to me to be based over a huge time period.

Ok sorry about that. ooooops

Posted:We dont claim to be authentic in anyway......so you can calm down we wont steal you authentic jester crown away from you.

For instance one of our takes on St George is me in a burberry dress being a chav fairy princess watching the football and making jokes about icelands volcanos and doctor who. That is not one we do at ren faires.
