King Arthur Ed2016

We do love Story Pocket Theatre so headed to this adaptation with high hopes, which were not disappointed. This was a beautifully rendered telling of the tale, featuring strong performances and the most adorable puppet-dog we have every laid eyes on. It’s difficult to convey all the twists and turns of a long and drawn out story like Arthur’s without it seeming rushed, or sketchy, and there were times when I felt as though we were racing through parts of the plot, but the cast are excellent, the set (as with their previous shows) was attractive, clever, and cleverly used, and there were no dull moments. A great show for older children, and of course, their parents and carers.

Gilded Balloon At The Museum, until 29 Aug.
