The Trumpet & The King

22 Mar 2023 - 20:00 @ The Market Place Armagh The Trumpet & The King



Please note this performance will now start at 8pm.

In the late 15th century, John Blanke, a young
black musician of exceptional talent left the ancient city of Granada and made
his way to the court of Henry VII of England. There he forged a surprising
musical bond with the child who would become the infamous Henry VIII.

These two extraordinary young men scramble
their way to adulthood full of feeling, often outrageously funny, as they try
to figure out love, sex, politics, and what it means to be a man.

Performed by two outstanding young actors, who
effortlessly create all the characters of their Tudor world, ‘The Trumpet &
The King’ is a play about music, belonging and friendship across religious and
cultural divides, which will draw you effortlessly into the dramatic world of
the early Tudors.

Meticulously researched, written and directed
here in Northern Ireland by playwright Andrea Montgomery, who is known for her
giant Northern Irish Shakespeare projects. Soundscape by Nick Boyle.

This event takes place in our Studio Theatre
with an unreserved, tiered seating layout.
