King Arthur, Sort Of...
In honor of their 5th anniversary, The 𝗕𝗿𝗼𝗮𝗱𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝗕𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗙𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹 is presenting a condensed version of their season in 2022. Normally a four-week season following an extensive submission and selection process, they have decided to produce six works from local BBTF alumni all in one weekend. Selected from over 100 fantastic productions is Edgar Chisholm's 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗦𝗮𝘃𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝗲𝗻, where I have been cast as King for this event.
Long ago a young African princess is forced into an arranged marriage with Ramses the living god of the greatest civilization on earth. The princess resists with every fiber of her being. Fighting for her own choice in the only way she knows how; with her wits and her courage. Then surprisingly, she meets this Pharoah and she is smitten. Thus begins a Shakespearian epic adventure with heart-rending turn arounds, and dangerous swordplay amidst an ancient but accurate historical backdrop.
