Woman Of The Woods
April-May 2000
Gordon Pascoe, music and lyrics Karen Mitura, book.
Lisa Kerr  Stage Director

Elisha, a Celtic woman of the woods meets Thomas, a Christian Saxon Lord and they fall for each other.
They have a huge problem because their cultures clash. Christian vs Celtic Pagan and Landowner vs Free Spirit.
An Abbess and a Priest are an Evil Pair that makes things worse for Elisha but a kindly nun,  Vincenta, and two friendlyvillagers, Much and Morag,  befriend Elisha.
