    A marvelous telling of the Arthurian myth that brings the tale and these relationships vividly to life. Captivating and well done!

    Everything you would want in an epic retelling of the Arthurian legend with a focus on the human cost of the fall of Camelot. The characters and relationships are incredibly raw and real, there is humor and hope and devastating tragedy. The verse is muscular and gorgeous and the storytelling grips you from beginning to end. I hope this play has a long long life!
