Special Event

Writing across Difference: King Arthur’s Night and Peter Panties
with Niall McNeil and Marcus Youssef
Presented by Talonbooks

Niall McNeil and Marcus Youssef talk about and show examples of their groundbreaking writing process and the unique way that they work together. This 10-year writing collaboration has produced two major new works: Peter Panties and King Arthur’s Night, recently published by Talonbooks. King Arthur’s Night features an intersectional ensemble of performers with and without Down syndrome and is the product of a four-year partnership between Neworld Theatre and the Down Syndrome Research Foundation of BC. It premiered in 2017 at the Luminato Festival and the National Arts Centre and was most recently seen at Vancouver’s PuSh Festival.
