The Man Who Would be King archiveAlone in a foreign country, locked inside a sweltering, cluttered office, a man waits for news; something, anything that he can report back home. Finally, in the dead of night, a wild-eyed stranger arrives with a story to tell; a story of greed, adventure and ruin that will turn his world upside down. This is the story of Peachy Callahan and Daniel Dravot; soldiers-for-hire in the shifting borders of the Middle East. Tired of the mercenary life, Peachy and Daniel have come up with a plan; head for northern Afghanistan, enslave the natives, and install themselves as kings. Inspired by Kipling's debut novella, brought to life by Dawn State Theatre Company, The Man Who Would Be King is a pulsating new piece of rough theatre that's part ghost-story, part pirate-shanty, and part hallucination. This show is a work-in-development, so please be gentle with it. Duration: 50mins.
