Featuring an inclusive and professional cast, King Arthur’s Night promises to be one of the most fascinating play you’ve ever seen
We’re stoked for all the amazing Hong Kong Arts Festival programmes such as HOME by Geoff Sobelle and the Thomas Quasthoff Quartet. But if you’re huge fans of the playwright Niall McNeil, period dramas and legendary figures, King Arthur’s Night is just what we recommend. Co-presented by the Hong Kong Arts Festival and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, it’s one of the highlights of the new project No Limits that promotes inclusiveness through arts. But more importantly, the show is just absolutely enthralling as it touches upon the idea of betrayed love and power struggle. Catch it at the Sha Tin Town Hall Auditorium on 19 and 20 March!
What’s King Arthur’s Night about?

We’re not going to spoil you with the details but here’s a quick overview. King Arthur has an incestuous relationship with his sister Morgana, which leads to the birth of their bastard son Mordred, while Guinevere (King Arthur’s wife) is having an affair with Lancelot the Knight. To make things a little more complicated – and chaotic – Morgana and Mordred are trying to steal the crown from King Arthur.
It’s a brilliant story of deceit, betrayal and revenge that explores the relationship between power and greed – so basically, humanity.
Unlike your typical Arthurian play, King Arthur’s Night by Neworld Theatre features a professional and inclusive cast, including the talented playwright/actor Niall McNeil, Neworld’s Artistic Director Marcus Youssef, theatre practitioner James Long and composer Veda Hille.
To facilitate people with different ability, accessible services such as audio description and theatrical interpretation are also available. So don’t miss this clever reinterpretation on the classic King Arthur on 19 and 20 March (relaxed performance on 20 March).
