A blind man walks into a village pub…
…and tells anyone who’ll listen that he was once the king of darts.
He orders a pint and settles down to recount the story of his glorious rise to the top – and how dark secrets brought him down.
REX THE KING is the story of a Somerset darts champion who ruled the world, but lost it all – it’s a theatrical tale that’s witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic. Expect blood and sweat, tears and beers, not to mention plenty of songs and silliness.
Featuring live music, flying arrows and a portable dartboard, the show is touring to pubs, village halls and theatre bars across Somerset.
