THIS ISN’T THE KING ARTHUR YOU KNOW.

Written by longtime collaborators Niall McNeil, Marcus Youssef, and Veda Hille, King Arthur’s Night is epic in scale and features a radically inclusive ensemble of artists.  Refined, brutal, crude and tender, King Arthur’s Night tests what we know about the limits of theatre, language and our collective understanding of the narratives that are permitted to shape our world.

Theatre at UBC is recognised as one of Canada’s foremost academic Theatre programs. Located on the spectacular UBC campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, we offer a comprehensive range of degrees in the study of Theatre and the opportunity to learn in an interdisciplinary environment combining Film, Creative Writing, Music, Digital Media and other university disciplines. Our approach encourages students to bring leading edge theory and research together with practice in the staging of innovative new works, national premieres and classics from the world stage. Our faculty of accomplished artists and scholars in residence ably support students’ imaginative, technical, and intellectual development equally as they prepare to embark on a life in theatre and related arts.
