“…after watching King Arthur’s Night I flat out sobbed.” —Colin Thomas, award winning playwright
An upside-down world. A betrayed love. An unwanted child. Animals learning to walk and talk. A revolt by the subjugated masses. A kingdom come undone. This isn’t the King Arthur you know.
Refined, brutal, crude and tender, King Arthur’s Night invites audiences to reject the idea that some experiences are inherently marginal, and instead witness those stories front and centre on stage. The production includes the fully integrated professional cast with actors from the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, BC, a live band, and the Hong Kong Children’s Choir.
“…mythical, highly musical, and lavishly designed.” —The Georgia Straight
“The invisibility of difference, the celebration of the idiosyncratic behaviour of everybody on the stage.” —The Toronto Star
Contains strong language. Not recommended for age 12 or under.
