QUOTES OF NOTEKing Arthur’s Night and Peter Panties
“An epically imagined work of theatre, a revolutionary act of inclusion, and a moving story of friendship … The project, created with composer-musician Veda Hille and directed by James Long, doesn’t patronize and it defies preconceptions. … Mythical, highly musical, and lavishly designed. It is also a rallying cry for change in theatre. But more than anything, it’s an extraordinary story of friendship.”
