    Who Would Be King

    Violence and betrayal, angels and prophets, villains and kings . . . and rubber chickens.

    Who rises to rule and how far will he fall in the great clown kingdom of Who Would Be King?  This new epic tale, created by Liars & Believers, swings from absurd buffoonery to high tragedy, with kinetic physicality, silliness, swords and a live band.

    Adapted from the ancient tale of King Saul, Who Would Be King is the story of a good man given an impossible task, who stands up and fails nobly.  It asks, what is the difference between good and great, and where is God between the two?

    Come help create Who Would Be King!  Liars & Believers presents a staged reading of this new work-in-progress.  Halfway through development, the play is being shared with you as it now stands.  Join in a discussion afterwards about what works, what doesn't and where it should go in the next phase of creation.  Be part of the ensemble and help tell the story.

    Liars & Believers expands the language of live performance, exploring the widest variety of theatrical forms, creating accessible, unique shows that meaningfully engage the world we share.  Liars & Believers is an UP designated organization by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
