Wassail Theatre Company present…Rex the King.
Due to popular demand, we’re taking our adaptation of the Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex on a national tour in 2018
A blind man walks into a 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 Somerset 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.
“…a monumental theme encased in beer and pub camaraderie, encapsulating all human emotions in a musical, magical, hugely entertaining whole.”
