The Awkward Silence: The Bastard King

4th – 8th Sept 7.30pm £8/7

The King is dead. Long live…the BABY?!?
With the old king slain in battle, the crown of Etherium passes to his unbelievably decrepit uncle, ably assisted and controlled (and bathed) by the scheming Archbishop. But the glamorous Queen Tianna of the Southern Kingdom has other ideas. And was the old king really quite as childless as everybody thought…?
Lord of the Rings without the elves; Shakespeare without the identical twins; Game of Thrones without the incest. This is war. This is chaos. This is The Bastard King.
The Bastard King is the third narrative sketch show by The Awkward Silence, following The Voyage of The Narwhal and Racketeers.
