Sypnosis
Miles Radcliffe, a serious and grief-stricken knight, is assigned a new squire, Arnold Garfinkel, an upbeat and joyful half-elf–much to Miles’ chagrin. When their kingdom goes under attack by a neighboring city, Miles and Arnold must put aside their differences and learn to cooperate for the greater good.

Main Roles

Miles Radcliffe
(Height Range: 5’10-6’3; Age Range: 30-40 years old)

Arnold Garfinkel
(Height Range: 4’10-5’5; Age Range: 25-30 years old)

The King
(Height Range: 5’7-6’0; Age Range: 50-65 years old)
