The Rime of the Ancient Mariner was written in 1797-8 by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It recounts the experiences of a seaman who has returned from a long voyage. The old grey-bearded sailor stops a wedding guest and recounts his adventures and the guests' reaction is at first reluctant to listen as the wedding ceremony is about to begin, but is soon captivated by the ships initial good fortune to the sighting of an albatross who leads it safely out of an ice jam. Coleridge uses narrative techniques to create a sense of danger, serenity, and the supernatural with personification and repetition. This is a remarkable performance by John O'Mahony who recently played Bilbo Baggins in the Watermill Theatres' award winning production of Lord of the Rings.
