King Arthur’s Night

February 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Neworld Theatre brings us theatre at its most transformative. This production is a work of radical upheaval, in which the King Arthur legend is made fresh for our eyes. Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere—they’re all present in this tale of love, honour and war. New to us are the live band, the 20-person choir and, most of all, the radically inclusive cast.

The players in this drama, all professional, include people whose life experience includes Down syndrome. They stand on stage defined by their extraordinary perspectives. Playwrights and performers Niall McNeil, playing our eponymous hero, and Marcus Youssef have collaborated to write a show that will defy expectations and, hopefully, create new ones. Their art is original and personal, but it feels as necessary as the classic literature it draws on: they want to change theatre, and they want theatre to change us.
