Shapshifter Theatre Company and Berwick House Productions present
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.by Keith Dewhurst
