A fresh vision of Britain's greatest story:

The epic of King Arthur-from his conception in sorcerous lust, to the shining wonder of his kingdom, to the scattering of his warriors in search of the Grail, to the tragic endgame of betrayal and bloodshed - all encompassed by the secret cave where Arthur still sleeps, waiting to return.

A magical blend of spoken word and music brings alive "The Matter of Britain" - the story of King Arthur and the Quest for The Grail, drawing on earlier sources than the well-known medieval versions - the Celtic Arthur depicted in the Welsh Cycle The Mabinogion being more darker and dynamic. Follow him as he harrows the Underworld to bring back the fabled Cauldron of Plenty - and how he suffers the consequences.

Fire Springs came into existence in 2000 through Bath Storytelling Circle and performances in Bath Fringe and the Bardic Festival of Bath.

Arthur's Dream premiered at the Rondo Theatre, Bath in May 2001.

Other Fire Springs product ions include The Thinning Veil, Finding the Thread, and Robin of the Wildwood.
