Additional Info

It's the perfect execution! Kill the rich and give to the poor! This version of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table incorporates mystery and madness in a castle full of wenches, thieves, sorcerers, and knights to provide a bloody good time. Lords and ladies partake of an authentic medieval feast beside loony Lord George and his evil queen. All are celebrating the battle between White Knights and Black Knights. Have fun choosing sides in this ruthless and rousing comedy of errors, jousts, beheadings, pageantry, and pie eating with a touch of fear.
