The Mummers Play

 This Grade II listed pub at 22 Fleet Street is owned by Greene King. The original Cock built in 1549 on the other side was demolished in 1887 and much was moved to this new one.

This theme was inspired by Iona’s 1980 school play St George and The Green Knight, the latter played by the punk Slasher! The main action is a wooden sword duel with a Hero versus a Fool or Foe. One is cut down and a quack Doctor restores life with a drug. Iona removed the figures on every London Tavern ceramic at the greenware stage, then added those from her own hand-pressed moulds.
