The King's Web at ChickenShed theatre from 4 March
The King's Web, an original story by Chickenshed, at Rayne Theatre Theatre, at the ChickenShed, in Southgate, north London, from 4 to 17 Mar 2011.
Set in a country on the brink of destruction, The King’s Web explores the fight for freedom and the redemptive power of compassion and unity.
Faced with civil war and the destruction of their beliefs, the people are compromised by a weak ruler and in-fighting as different factions seek to make their voices heard. The King through tragedy cuts himself off from his people by creating a giant web with spiders who attack anyone who comes close. The story is unfinished and the real life conflict is unfinished as in some way the ending is bound up in both reality and fantasy.
