Romeo and Juliet. Tristan and Iseult. Antony and Cleopatra. Bonnie and Clyde. Some people are just made for each other. How they got together and how it all worked out…well, that’s what love stories are all about. This love story that’s been around for hundreds of years is the hauntingly beautiful medieval tale of star-crossed lovers Eglamore and Cristobel. Theirs is the story of a cruel father, three dangerous tasks, a fateful journey, and a love that will not be denied. The random winds of fate conspire to keep them apart. Will they lose each other forever? Or will love conquer all? The medieval music trio of PanHarmonium will accompany Dolores during the telling of Eglamore and Cristobel.
Dolores Hydock’s vivacious style fills the stage with what one reviewer called “a Swirl of characters and a cascade of lovely language.” Her funny, affectionate stories about family fireworks, food fads, true love, turnip greens, and other peculiarities of everyday life are full of wit and energy, and her award-winning adaptations of oral histories, medieval adventures, and traditional tales make the magic of other lives and other times come alive. Dolores lives in Birmingham, Alabama. To learn more about Dolores visit her website.
Before Dolores takes the stage, Sally Perkins will share a story. Sally discovered storytelling while attending a performance at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. With her PhD in Rhetorical Studies, she was drawn to the weekly storytelling at a local children’s hospital. Sally is a past recipient of the Frank Basile Emerging Stories fellowship, and the J.J. Reneaux Grant from the National Storytelling Network. Visit SallyPerkins.net to learn more.
