On August 16 and 17 at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, from 11:45 a.m. to about 12:30 p.m., at the Midsummer Stage, Jane the Phoole will hold Court! For 45 brief minutes upon the Throne of England each day, Jane will hear petitions, grant boons (and baboons!), answer questions, play games, enjoy entertainments, and Whatever Else Happens! Please come and play if you can. I'll solve conundrums (conundrae?), deliver you from woes, subvert the dominant paradigm, and anything else we have time for. If you're a Variety Act or a Music Act and you have a short offering of the 2-minute variety, bring it -- I'll try to highlight you and plug your show! If you're a participant in the show, please bring patrons with you, and if they have questions or puzzles or needs that the Crown can solve for them, all the better!
Have a look at http://www.phoole.com for pictures of The Last Time This Happened, which was July 6 -- in 35 minutes, I managed to redistribute some fancy houses, provide patrons with Noble Love Interests, secure the services of Francis Walsingham to find a patron's, er, "baby daddy," and abolish slavery, among other deeds both grand and foolish. What will we achieve in two 45-minute Phoole reigns? It's up to you!
