The Broth of Brith Performed by Cégep Champlain St. Lawrence


In February 2013, students from Cégep St. Lawrence performed John Halpin’s ‘The Broth of Brith’.

The Story:

Once upon a time, in a land far away, there was a kingdom called Brith. For many years Brith had been at war against its old ally, the Kingdom of Arbour.

The Army of Brith received its strength from a magical soup (broth), served to them by King William of Brith at the Feast of the Fool’s Moon, The aging king is a widower with three children, but sadly, his son, the heir to the throne, is clearly not fit to replace him.

The secret recipe for the Broth of Brith is then lost and the whole kingdom is launched into a search.

Who will find the recipe? What will the king do? Where will the princess go? When will the war end?
