Direct from the USA, the defending three-time National Shakespearean Acting Champions present Shakespeare’s rarely done history, King John. This heart-pounding 90 minute experience will keep you on your toes. In this experimental theatre experience, the characters will join the audience in their seats and around the theatre as they embark on this thrilling trip to early 13th-century Britain. King John has prematurely taken the throne following his older brother’s death. Years have passed and young Prince Arthur, now ten years old, has France’s backing and is ready to fight to take back the throne that is rightfully his.
