Description

Excalibur, equipped. School, skipped. Six months ago, when they lost their mum, their names shot past the sun and echoed through the stars. Today they become the greats they’re destined to be. A journey through a city like London: one with trolls and warlocks, goblins and knives. For 13-year-old Jay and eight-year-old Saskia, this is the biggest quest of their lives. A mash-up of gig theatre, live foley and hip-hop-influenced slam poetry, this modern fable takes audiences to another world. Pound of Flesh won three awards at NSDF 2019.
