King Arthur
On from 08 Nov 2006 till 09 Dec 2006
Arcola Theatre
by Keith Dewhurst
Genre(s): Drama

About: King Arthur

Arthur is a man with problems.
His army is under siege, his new wife is acting suspiciously,
and his old friend and counsel Merlin keeps turning into animals.
Defeat seems inevitable.

From the Circus of Rome to winter campfires on a British hilltop, this irreverent epic walks the line between history and mythology. Featuring extensive live music and dynamic walk-about staging, King Arthur reunites the team behind the hit production of Lark Rise to Candleford to bring their inventive, magical production style to the Arcola for the first time.


The press on Keith Dewhurst and Shapeshifter’s Lark Rise to Candleford:

“A jewel of the fringe theatre”
–The Stage.

“Outstandingly affecting”
–The Times.

“Perfectly done… Shapeshifter invite their audience into the past and beguile them into staying”
–Time Out.

“Truly a wonderful way to spend an evening” – Theatreworld.
