Knightmare was a fantasy adventure game show, shown on children’s TV in the UK on ITV between 1987 and 1994.
Knightmare Live began life as an irresponsible pub conversation in 2012. It was quickly developed by actor turned creative director Paul Flannery for the 2013 Edinburgh Festival where it received rave reviews and sell-out audiences. It’s success continued in 2014 (Level 2) with another sell-out Edinburgh run, a national tour and even a one-off show at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End featuring a special cameo from Hugo Myatt, who played Treguard in the original series.
Now in its fifth year, Knightmare Live continues to grow and bring all the fun and drama of one of television’s best loved shows to the stage.
