Knights of New Jersey explores four essential parts of the Renaissance Faire. Honor, Courage, Loyalty, and Turkey Legs. Lots of Turkey Legs. It does so through the comedic life of fictional Renaissance Faire performers Sir Robert of Arden Dale and his mostly trusty squire Tom. Director Michael Hadley says Knights of New Jersey started with a visit to Medieval Times in East Rutherford.
“I thought, what would it be like to have that as your day job? To actually punch a clock, swing a sword, and that got me thinking about that lifestyle,” said Hadley.
