The hottest new political couple in the UK will make their first public appearance tonight! TONIGHT Hijinx Theatre will bring you Arthur Lloyd as President and Gwen, his glamorous first lady, in the opening night of their national tour of Wales and England, Spinning The Round Table by Lewis Davies.
 
Director Chris Morgan said:
“Spinning The Round Table introduces a new political couple for a new time and place”.
 
This new adaptation of the King Arthur love story will take you to the edge of your seat as politics and passion combine for a modern day usage of a traditional parable to reflect twenty first century life.
 
Writer Lewis Davies said:
“It is my fascination of stories changing to suit their times that has driven my enjoyment of collaborating with Chris Morgan and Hijinx on our version of an old story - that of King Arthur - trying to work out why it has endured - what in its telling has a resonance for people of all ages - something in the story has kept it moving”
 
Spinning The Round Table opens tonight at Whitchurch High School, Cardiff before visiting Theatr Felinfach, the Torch Theatre, and returning to Cardiff for two performances in The Sherman Theatre on 23rd and 24th September. This play will then tour for another ten weeks across Wales and England.
