Arthur is a new production inspired by the King Arthur myth, which we will produce in Yorkshire in 2025. It will be made over the next two and half years in collaboration with young people from across Yorkshire, with the support from youth-focused organisations in Bradford, Hull, Kirklees, Leeds, Rotherham, Sheffield and York.
Our take on the Arthur story is one where a young person, not born into privilege, who no one expects anything from, all of a sudden has the power to change the world, and build a new society. What sort of a world will they build?
If you work with a youth organisation in Yorkshire that supports young people from marginalised backgrounds, and would like to partner with us on this project, please get in touch with Jameela or Ali. If you work with a venue & would interested in programming this for 2025 or beyond, please also get in touch.
The work in 2023-2024 has been made possible by awards from The Belfrey, One Community, Hull & East Riding and Sheffield Town Trust.
