Camelot is Crumbling: Two Arthurian Dreams
"...this is why we need songs (for communicating)
from "Camelot Is Crumbling: Two Arthurian Dreams"
Praise for Camelot is Crumbling: Two Arthurian Dreams
"...edgy, intelligent, lit-dorky...back and ready to rule."
"...intense and riveting...exhilarating, well-acted and visually
"...a brilliant job of combining classical theatre presentation
with spoken word slam poetry...you haven't lived until you've seen a bunch
of blue hair rocking to Arthurian hip-hop."
"I'm still kind of dumbfounded after seeing this show...I just had
no idea they were this good. Camelot Is Crumbling is one of those Fringe
shows that seemingly comes out of nowhere and knocks me on my ass. I loved
this show...intensely compelling to watch...simply but inventively done...a
compelling nightmare, well-executed...highly recommended."
About the Show
Both plays are inspired by Sir Thomas Malory's "Le Morte D'Arthur," a morbid and fantastic Middle English epic depicting the downfall of Camelot. In "Camelot is Crumbling," Arthur's heir broods on the futility of political power; in "Broceliande," a knight is tormented by visions of Merlin's brutal murder.
Help us try to make sense out of a world dominated by power players and crumbling ideals - in other words, a world entirely unlike our own.
