Preview - 1066: Three Kings, by Michael Punter, at the Stables Theatre in Hastings


“I’ll tell you the truth about Hastings. I’ll tell you the story of Three Kings, never heard before. A story of friendship, and betrayal and the fall of a kingdom.”

1066: Three Kings is a dramatic modern interpretation of events leading up to the Battle of Hastings. Poignant and powerful, this world premiere promises to be a highlight of the ROOT 1066 Festival, taking the audience on an imaginative, free-wheeling journey of deception and intrigue, treachery and illusion. Combining imaginative storytelling, stimulating visual effects, physical theatre and magic, this is a play that will appeal to audiences of all ages. A rich theatrical delight, 1066: Three Kings really is a history play for everyone.

A Stables Theatre production directed by Barbara Ward and Niall Whitehead from 7th-14th October.
