About: The King's Web

Set in a country on the brink of destruction, The King’s Web explores the fight for freedom and the redemptive power of compassion and unity.

Faced with civil war and the destruction of their beliefs, the people are compromised by a weak ruler and in-fighting as different factions seek to make their voices heard. The King through tragedy cuts himself off from his people by creating a giant web with spiders who attack anyone who comes close.

The King’s Web, an old folk tale told by the people, is a symbol of inspiration and hope that the oppressors seek to destroy. The ruler’s daughter uses the story as she strives to save her father and the people from losing something even more precious than their freedom – the loss of their humanity.

The King’s Web is an original story by Chickenshed. It was last performed in 1997 as a 40 minute ballet, and has now been framed within a new context.
