    Saint George and the Dragon: A Mummers Play by John Langstaff & David Gentleman Posted on December 6, by tygertale • 4 Comments Not long after I moved to Bradford on Avon in Wiltshire, I was in the local pub for some Christmas drinks. About A Mummers’ Play. From New York Times bestselling author Jo Beverley comes a holiday tale of romance and intrigue in which a spirited woman hunts for the truth about her fallen lover On Christmas Eve, a group of costumed mummers—or actors—arrive at Torlinghurst where they will perform for Jack Beaufort, the new Duke of Cranmore. Hopefully Tale to Tell will find The Mummers a large audience of devoted followers who will be with them for life, and to these ears it’s genuinely surprising this missed out on a Mercury nomination. For all the daydreamers and first-flush of lovers, this album will be as essential to your life as breathing and toothpaste. --Ian Wade/5(57). Mumming was used as a means of entertaining at feasts and functions, particular mention is made of one feast where torch bearers lead the same number of mummers in, who would do acrobatics in a variety of costumes, including animal costumes.
