About this show

At the turn of the first millennium, Princess Ymma of Normandy, a tenth-century feminist, enters an arranged marriage with Lord Silence of Cumbria - a naïve boy of 14. Their mismatched union - and a shocking discovery on their wedding night - sends them on a mad scramble through the mud of ancient England, facing the perils of Viking raids, a murderous king and hallucinogenic mushrooms. With elements of both William Shakespeare and Monty Python, Moira Buffini tackles Big Questions about the nature of God, the price of power, and the wisdom of silence.
