ONCE UPON A TIME, IN A LONG FORGOTTEN KINGDOM, LIVED A KING THAT WISHED NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN. THIS IS THE STORY OF THAT KING.
Derric VII is an original piece by local playwright, Ralph Turley. It’s Shakespeare meets Lord of the Rings with a dash of Python. I was in a read-through of this play in Portland a few decades ago and remembered it when I was in Majesticpiece Theatre’s Midsummer a few weeks back. It has a similar feel. Ralph generously offered his support and the piece and I’m very excited to bring this reworking of his original to the Majesticpiece Theatre.
