November 2014 Bristol. THE KING AND HIS SON
Having written a story for a Group called 'Grandparents apart' I worked with a local school -St Bonaventures to develop three songs and a piece of dramatic interlude within the narrative path. This was then performed in front of a large audience to much success. the story covers in Mythical terms many of the devices and archetypes associated with broken families, suffering from lack of communication, contact and resolution. The issues inherent for both the grandchildren and Grandparents are often not there fault and are usually caused by the breakdown of marriage and relationship. these situations can last for years and in some cases life times as families splinter and become divided. The King and his Son, as a telling attempts to resolve some of these issues, while others cannot be resolved.
