Man Who Would Be King, The

Dawn States pulsating tale of greed, adventure and ruin rips up Kiplings classic mercenary yarn to interrogate Britains place in the world today. Two actors combine searing text, bold physicality and original music to tell the story of Peachy Callahan and Daniel Dravot, soldiers-for-hire amidst the shifting borders of the Middle East. Tired of the mercenary life, Peachy and Daniel have come up with a plan: head to northern Afghanistan, enslave the natives and install themselves as kings. Thrilling, contemporary theatre, nominated for Les Enfants Terribles Award 2014.
