“THE PLAY’S THE THING”…OR IS IT?
“The father’s passions storm within the son.”—Act I, Scene IV
The Tragedy of Arthur centers around the discovery of a lost Shakespeare play and the doubts surrounding its origins. It is an evening of fraud, forgery and illegitimacy, centering on the complicated relationship between a father and son.
“There’s only war. ‘Tis man’s inheritance.”—Act IV, Scene I
This lost text is the true story of the famous King Arthur from the Bard’s point of view. It is a tale of epic war, love and the search for one man’s true calling.
“What man knows aught of his chronicle?”—Act V Scene III
The Tragedy of Arthur is a play full of Shakespeare’s language, poetry, insight, drama, beauty, and history; however the mystery of its true origins begs us to blend and blur what we know and what we choose to believe.
Does our birth decide our destiny? Can a bastard be a king? Can a modern man write Shakespeare? Join GSP on its exciting journey into the heart of the truth.
