13 October - 5 November 2017

Written and Directed by Caroline Devlin

Lighting by Mark Dymock | Sound by Matt Eaton

Costume Design Co-ordinator Anett Black

Get set for a legendary family adventure!

From humble beginnings as a knight’s squire, who pulls the sword from the stone, to his destiny as King of the Britons, join us for the famous story of the ‘once and future king’ Arthur Pendragon.

However, as Arthur gathers his Knights of the Round Table, a terrible threat surfaces in the shape of the White Dragon, unleashed by an unexpected adversary.

This brand new stage play, written especially for GSC, will have all the well-known parts of the Arthur story including Camelot, Excalibur, the Lady in the Lake and of course the all-powerful wizard Merlin, guiding Arthur towards his destiny.

...and the Spiegeltent is back!

Yes, we're bringing back the fabulous, antique Spiegeltent from Belgium, which enchanted you all last year!

"Something a little different is clearly about to take place inside this strange structure. Red linen seats; mirrored walls; roll up, roll up atmosphere envelops…”  Surrey Life Magazine, 2016

Set in the field behind Challengers (a children’s disability charity) at Burchatt’s Farm in Stoke Park, the Spiegeltent holds 200 people, is fully heated and accessible to all. A licensed bar is located inside and the popular cheeseboards will also be making a welcome return!

Written and directed by CAROLINE DEVLIN (Macbeth, King Lear, Henry V), Arthur will feature five actors who will transport you to a world of medieval magic. Joining Caroline are Lighting Designer MARK DYMOCK and Sound Designer MATT EATON, who both collaborated on 2016’s Grimms’ Fairy Tales.
