England versus France, peace versus war, might versus right, private passion versus public duty, King John
has them all. He is a virtuoso politician with an uncontrollable passion for the crown - a hero and a villain. The play is powered by the politics of war with the future of England at stake. All goes well for King John and his tactically brilliant political manoeuvres, until the Pope's ambassador interferes. War and torture ensue, and King John's hold on the crown slips away.Performers Jamie Ballard, Steven Beard, Bette Bourne, Amy Brown, Simon Bubb, Morven Christie, Sorcha Cusack, Christopher Davies, Nicholas Day, Rupert Evans, David Fielder, Curtis Flowers, Tamsin Greig, Eliza Hunt, Geoffrey Lumb, Joseph Millson, Adam Rayner, Patrick Robinson, Leon Tanner, Jonny Weir, Richard McCabe, Sax Cox, Shane Frater, John Heffernan, Sam O'Mahoney-Adams.
