Victorious Cornish King Mark is to marry the sister of his rival; Yseult. But his marriage is doomed from the moment he sends his newly discovered nephew Tristan to escort her back to Cornwall. Tristan & Yseult is an offbeat retelling of the ancient Cornish legend of transporting passion and fatal adultery. The story of the legendry lovers seen through the eyes of those they spurned. A love story for the unloved. Kneehigh Theatre’s critically acclaimed production was first staged in 2003 and effortlessly blends comedy, tragedy and music for a performance that is both playful and profound.
