Rex The King – Wassail Theatre
July 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm£10 - £12
A blind man walks into a village pub and tells anyone who’ll listen that he was once the king of darts. He orders a pint and settles down to recount the story of his glorious rise to the top – and how dark secrets brought him down.
REX THE KING is the story of a county darts champion who ruled the world, but lost it all – it’s a theatrical tale that’s witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic. Expect blood and sweat, tears and beers, not to mention plenty of songs and silliness. Featuring live music, flying arrows and a portable dartboard, this is community theatre at its best.
“Wassail have scored an impressive 180…the play is engaging, engrossing and enthralling.”
Somerset County Gazette
“A monumental theme encased in beer and pub camaraderie, encapsulating all human emotions in a musical, magical, hugely entertaining whole. It’s popular entertainment that packs a heavy punch, right on your own doorstep.” The Fine Times Recorder
“Three versatile, talented performers reveal a world of driving ambition, cut-throat competition, and over-weening hubris with its inevitable downfall, using live music, dry wit, local references and popular culture.”
Following the success of “Reclaimed” earlier in the year Victoria Hall are delighted to welcome Wassail Theatre Company back to Radstock. They are renowned for taking unusual, accessible theatre shows to village halls, pubs and rural arts centres. wassailtheatre.co.uk.
