WHO WOULD BE KING
OBERON Shows
November 5 - 22, 2015
Violence and betrayal, angels and prophets, villains and kings… and rubber chickens!

Conceived & Directed by Jason Slavick
Music & Lyrics by Jay Mobley
Written by the LAB Ensemble

A new show from Liars & Believers, the OBERON Artists in Residence who brought you Icarus and Talk to Strangers. Adapted from the ancient tale of King Saul, Who Would Be King is the story of a good man given an impossible task, who stands up and fails nobly. It asks, what is the difference between good and great, and where is God between the two?

Who rises to rule and how far will he fall in the great clown kingdom of Who Would Be King? This new epic tale, created by Liars & Believers, swings from absurd buffoonery to high tragedy, with kinetic physicality, silliness, swords and a live band.

Discounts available for groups 6+, call: 617.547.8300 to purchase.
