Arthur's Adventure

A pantomime written and directed by Peter Webster
January 2000 at Faringdon School

The action of the play takes place in the ancient and possibly mythical land of Camelot. Mrs Tickleme, housekeeper to Sir Jikal-Trusse, sets the scene. The King is dead and a successor must be found. The Knights of the Round Table suggest various ways to settle the succession, but are eventually persuaded by Merlin to hold a tournament to decide who will try to pull the sword from the stone, with whoever succeeds becoming King. Sir Jikal-Trusses's son, Sir Loin briefs Arthur his squire, as to all the equipment he needs for the tournament and sends Arthur to fetch it, with the final instruction not to forget a thing. Of course, Arthur forgets something crucial - Sir loin's sword; seeing one seemingly abandoned in the stone, he takes it and brings it to Sir loin, who realising it is not his, asks Arthur where he found it.
