The Holy Grail has been found and the Round Table has won its place in history, but Lancelot has returned from the Quest in shame, a secret sin on his head. King Arthur discovers the sin, and the ensuing struggle dramatically exposes the deep flaws and nobility of the Arthurian myth as it examines the transition from an idealistic monarchy to a modern and pragmatic democracy.

Published Reviews

"The playwright is a 25-year-old named Matthew Freeman who has brashly tried to tell the back half of the Camelot tale as Shakespeare might have. Amazingly, he has largely succeeded, rendering the familiar story of honor and betrayal in an iambic pentameter that, at its best, is both lyrical and clear."

Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times
