Kevin, King of Egypt

Rob GeeThis event has now finished

An award-winning show depicting the story of an unlikely friendship between an escaped mental health patient and a lost child

Escaped mental health patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act, and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of the pharaoh Ramses II. On his way to Egypt, via the Tesco Express, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie – a lost six-year-old. Together they embark on a journey that will change both their lives forever.

"Masterfully plotted… stunningly funny and compassionate"
