The Green Woman (1988)

The Green Woman was written and directed by Mark Beeson, inspired by ‘The Green Man’ motif . This image can be found on a number of medieval churches and is thought to be a symbol of regeneration. The play looked at the conflict between archaeology and ecology within a National Park. It featured an archaeologist who wanted trees to be cleared in order to view archaeological remains better and an ecologist who wanted more trees as a natural habitat for the surrounding wildlife.archieve-photo-green-wom005 A musical score was also written for this piece by Gillian Webster.
