TEENAGER Alex Cowan swapped science books for swords at the weekend.

The A-Level student trod the boards as King Arthur at the Oxford Playhouse.

He took the lead role in the Magdalen College School production of Idylls of the King by Lord Tennyson, adapted by associate of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Joanne Pearce.

Mr Cowan said: “Carrying the sword around was great fun but I needed to do lots of rehearsing.”
