Michael Morpurgo’s King Arthur is an epic tale of deep magic, heroism, love and betrayal.

Adapted from the novel Arthur: High King of Britain, from the author of War Horse and Private Peaceful.

When a small boy becomes stranded at sea, he is rescued by a mysterious old man who claims to be King Arthur Pendragon. As the old man starts to tell his stories, the boy is transported back to the days of Camelot.  Guided by Merlin, the young king pulls the sword from the stone to win the throne, puts the Saxons to the sword and unites the kingdom and gathers his Knights of the Round Table.  But even at his happiest with his beautiful Queen Guinevere and best friend Lancelot, Arthur senses the end of Camelot is not far away.

Stories of brave chivalry and battles, the search for the Holy Grail and the great betrayal by Lancelot and Guinevere are all part of this exciting new production from award-winning Story Pocket Theatre.  Michael Morpurgo’s King Arthur is a fast-moving show of adventure, physical theatre, puppetry and outstanding storytelling.
