“…King of the World is the kind of provoking piece that can make fringe theatre a rewarding experience” – Review (Arts City Liverpool)
“…this is why fringe theatre is so healthy; it gives audiences a chance to see great new works that are on their way to being brilliant” – Review (HowToDoTheatre.com)
What happens when a man with an enormous thirst for power, but a tragically brittle ego is made King of the World?
In a kingdom ruthlessly ruled over by a permanently tanned King with strange orange hair, one of his lowliest subjects decides he has had enough of the King’s increasingly mad decrees. Can he survive defying the King, especially when he can’t even depend on the loyalty of his oldest friend?
King of the World is a dark comedy and a modern day comment on despotic power and how loyalty, trust and friendship are tested under such a regime.
Any similarity to any present day President is entirely coincidental of course!
