Footlights: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (Grades 4-5)

This fast-moving comedy centers around poor Sir Gawain, whose courage is questioned by the other knights.  Alas!  Morgan le Fay, the evil enchantress, desires nothing more than to see Camelot destroyed, and she will not leave unless the kingdom can produce a knight who can pass her tests of bravery, honesty, and loyalty.  

Sir Gawain, needing to prove his bravery, accepts the challenge.  The trial begins with the knight getting to strike the monstrous Green Knight three times…  three blows that the Green Knight will return in a year’s time.  During the year, Sir Gawain successfully completes the tests of honesty and loyalty in comic style, but the hapless knight still must meet the Green Knight again with hopes of winning the hand of Lady Elaine, saving Camelot, and upholding the reputation of the Knights of the Round Table.
