King Arthur

by The Last Baguette theatre company

theatre, children-and-family

A fun & farcical family adventure performed outdoors by The Last Baguette

about the production

Somewhere in England, a long time ago, a very, very, very long time ago. So long ago that nobody quite knows whether it happened or not. Or where it happened or not. A boy pulled a sword from a stone and became King. A story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist and magic. This fun and farcical adventure is a deliberately anarchic and anachronistic re-telling of the Arthurian Legend with live music, physical comedy and lo-fi acrobatics. Family show suitable for everybody age 5+, and can be performed on grassy areas or concrete.

about the artist

The Last Baguette theatre company makes entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences. The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools.

Family audience, suitable for ages 5+

Four multi-skilled and highly inventive actor-musicians charged through a swathe of English folklore to tell the story of Arthur, with delicious twinkle-in-the-eye humour to engage, entertain and delight people of all ages. The show was a real joy, enjoyed by all.

Richard Wolfenden-Brown, Director, The Plough Arts Centre

The show finds unexpected slants on the familiar story and is ingeniously silly

Fiona Trim, The Theatre Shop, Clevedon

The Last Baguette Theatre Company’s interpretation of ‘The Legend of King Arthur’ brought a ray of sunshine to all who attended the show. A very colourful and varied show pitched perfectly to the younger audience which worked beautifully on our outdoor stage...an excellent performance.

Nick Ullmann, Artistic Director, Tetbury Goods Shed
