Nick Darke’s The King of Prussia was originally produced in 1996 by Kneehigh Theatre and Plymouth Theatre Royal. Join members of the original cast who are re-united for this rehearsed reading to celebrate Nick’s work.
‘Action-packed, racily written… [a] boisterous, jokey, inventively staged piece which dashes you round many a hairpin bend of plot… The show is a tonic, like a day at the seaside.’
The Independent, 8 March 1996.
