Knight of the bat

“Holy Parody!” By day, Londontown’s favourite playwright/playboy Will Shakespeare writes some of the greatest plays of all time. By night, however, he dons the mantle of the Cloaked Crusader: the fearsome Knight of the Bat. When faced with an apocalyptic ultimatum, Sir Bat and his squire Robin Goodfellow must square off against an entire gallery of rogues in a race against time! A new action-comedy written and directed by Dan Bray, the award-winning nerd who created Zomblet, Hansel und Gretel, Shakespeare’s Time Machine, Return to Baker Street, Borghild, and Herbie Dragons.
