This Neworld Theatre production is epic in scale and radically inclusive. It features a fully integrated professional cast which includes actors from Burnaby BC’s Down Syndrome Research Foundation, a live band and a 20-person choir.
Refined, brutal, crude and tender, King Arthur’s Night tests what we know about the limits of theatre, language and our collective understanding of the narratives that are permitted to shape our world. It invites audiences to reject the idea that some experiences are inherently marginal, and instead witness those stories front and centre on stage.
“Niall McNeil and Marcus Youssef create an epically imagined work of theatre, a revolutionary act of inclusion, and a moving story of friendship” –The Georgia Straight
