Lee Ann was pleased to take part in another full-cast production by The Online Stage.  The Riding to Lithend by Gordon Bottomley is a one act play that takes place in Iceland in the 10th century A.D.  Lee Ann plays the role of Jofrid.

From the introduction:
When you were here a year ago
I told you of a glorious woe,
The ancient woe of Gunnar dead
And its proud train of men long sped,
Fit brothers to your noble thoughts;
Then, as their shouts and Gunnar’s shouts
Went down once more undyingly
And the fierce saga was put by,
I told you of my old desire
To light again that bygone fire,
To body Hallgerd’s ruinous
Great hair and wrangling mouth for us,
And hear her voice deny again
That hair to Gunnar in his pain.
