Le Navet Bete

King Arthur

Fri 18 – Sat 19 Oct 2024

Le Navet Bete, one of the UK's leading touring physical comedy theatre companies, is touring King Arthur, a brand new laugh-out-loud show, hailed “a slapstick romp crammed with knockabout fun and innuendo” by Weekend Notes.

Camelot is in trouble. King Arthur knows that if he doesn’t turn things around, this civilisation will be forgotten, and be known as nothing more than a rather dull time in British history. But when three hapless squires approach him about changing that legacy… a legend is born.

Since forming in 2008 Le Navet Bete have produced fifteen critically acclaimed shows with both indoor and outdoor shows including Serendipity, Zemblanity, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dick Tracy, Robin Hood and His Merry Men, Dracula: The Bloody Truth, The Three Musketeers and Treasure Island.  Many of these shows still tour the UK and Internationally with the company also playing outdoor events from the circus fields at Glastonbury Festival and the beautiful gardens of the Herrenhausen Palace in Hanover, Germany, to the picturesque Plaza de Armas in Morelia, Mexico, and high up on the side of the Rock of Gibraltar.

Christmas 2022 saw the troupe perform with other actors for the first time in a co-production of Robin Hood at the Exeter Northcott Theatre. La Navet Bete are Associate Artists at the Exeter Northcott Theatre and Artists in Residence at the Exeter Phoenix.

Al Dunn, Co-Founder of Le Navet Bete said “Making accessible work has been at the centre of our ethos right from the very beginning. It’s our mission to create and tour hilarious, physical and totally accessible comedy theatre using creative and engaging storytelling for absolutely everyone from four to one hundred and four!  We can’t wait to share the Story of King Arthur to audiences across the UK this year in true ridiculously outrageous Le Navet Bete Style, placing physical theatre, fooling and slapstick at the heart of every show”

The Stage

If all theatre was this good we wouldn't need TV


A company on top form and leagues ahead of anyone else doing this work. Completely outrageous but always on the money. Simply beautiful.

What's On Stage

What Le Navet Bete does, and with such conviction, is persuade us that theatre is not an elite activity. It can, and should, be for everyone
