    English Kings (A Showbiz Comedy)

    Spring 2024
    This project is the recipient of CPT's 2023 Home Run Commission and is led by Nina Bowers and Philip Arditti. Due to premiere in Autumn 2023.

    Tobi King Bakare and this theatre deserve a shout-out for such a young, diverse audience. There is so much talk about audiences being full of over 60s and why, why can’t theatres get the crowds in to reflect society in general? Well, I’m happy to say that on a rainy Thursday evening, the theatre was completely full.
