Sword at Sunset

A dream may be the best thing to die for.


Tuesday 25 February - Saturday 01 March 2014


Bedlam Theatre




Rosemary Sutcliff, adapted by James Beagon


Meet the real King Arthur – Artos the Bear - fighting to save the last lights of Western civilization in Britain from the descending barbarian darkness. Bold and forceful in battle, yet tragically tormented in love, Artos must also contend with a darker personal doom.

The remnants of the former Roman Empire are crumbling. Can Artos and his companions preserve something of their culture whilst saving themselves?

Adapted by James Beagon, this is the first staging of the classic by Rosemary Sutcliff, author of the world famous Eagle of the Ninth trilogy.
