This autumn sees the welcome return of the Spiegeltent, venue for GSC’s new production of The Legend of King Arthur.
This brand new play has been written by Caroline Devlin, who has given us a delightful, action packed, humorous and family friendly tale, just right for this time of year.
More than that, she has produced a script befitting the multitalented company, taking and using recognisably Shakespearean plot devises to great effect.
We have the Fool as narrator, babies separated at birth, family treachery, songs, and so forth.
For children, it is a great introduction to the wider world of live drama.
The players are very few in number but, by incredible costume and lighting changes, plus our willing suspension logic, the stage is filled with a massive menage of characters.
A young girl changes to aged monk to soldier in moments and we applaud in delight.
I fully recommend this delightful play to anybody who can get to Guildford before it ends on 5th November.
Truly a 5 star production.
