halfBaked 2023/2024


halfBaked takes on the Arthurian mythos in this adaptation of Marie de France’s Lai de Lanval.

This slaptick romance exaggerates the queer tale of a disenchanted knight and his fairy Queen. King Arthur won’t know what’s hit him as his knights run rampant with love, lust, and getting Lai-d. Also… tandem bikes?
