REX THE KING
A blind man walks into a village pub... and tells anyone who’ll listen that he was once the king of darts.
Featuring live music, flying arrows and a portable dartboard, Rex The King is the story of a Somerset darts champion who ruled the world, but lost it all. It’s a theatrical tale that’s witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic: expect blood and sweat, tears and beers, not to mention plenty of songs and silliness.
Wassail Theatre Company unites communities through stories that inspire them, by giving people unexpected, surprising and positive experiences of theatre. Wassail is based in Somerset and exists through a network of associate artists from across the UK interested in bringing new audiences and new ideas together.
A Somerset audience member says: “Fantastic. Loved it. It was really moving in lots of different ways. You don’t need to know the story of Oedipus – this works for audiences that might not go and see theatre anywhere else: it’s tremendous. More of this theatre is what we really need.”
