King Berrenger has been in power for hundreds of years.
His kingdom is crumbling all around him: there’s lightning stuck in the sky, the clouds are raining frogs, the sun doesn’t listen to him, and not to mention there’s a huge bloody crack in the wall.
Yet despite all these warning signs, the stubborn monarch refuses to abdicate! Not even certain imminent death can convince the crown he’s no longer good for the job.
But this will not do, Queen Marguerite knows that if the country is to be saved the king must die.
There is no other way.
The Old Fitzroy Theatre returns with a new interpretation of Eugene Ionesco’s classic absurdist comedy directed by Megan Wilding and starring Jonny Hawkins, Shakira Clanton, Dalara Williams, Toby Blome, Emma O’Sullivan and Rob Johnson.
