This Was The World and I Was King


This Was The World and I Was King

Rediscover the unbridled imagination of childhood in this transporting story of courage, kindness and bravery set during the First World War.

A family friendly folk-musical featuring the enchanting poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson's 'A Child's Garden of Verses.' With their father in peril at the Front, the Connor children turn their imagination for comfort and distraction from reality.

Their make-believe kingdom comes to life with rousing folk music and hand-carved puppets as they set sail on impossible adventures.

'A triumph or originality... Enchanting at every turn.'***** ThreeWeeks

'This is a remarkable little show'**** The Scotsman

'An absolute treat; sheer exuberant joy from start to finish'**** Fourth Wall Magazine


Hookhitch Theatre present 'This Was The World and I Was King' at The Spread Eagle Theatre from 23rd-25th October @ 7:30pm.
