The Greenwich Theatre

A tale of greed, adventure and ruin inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s classic mercenary yarn.

The Man Who Would Be King

The Man Who Would Be King is the story of Peachy Carnehan and Daniel Dravot; soldiers-for-hire amid the shifting borders of the Middle East. Tired of the mercenary life, Peachy and Daniel have come up with a plan; head to Northern Afghanistan, enslave the natives, and install themselves as kings.

Dawn State (“a fantastic upcoming company” British Theatre Guide) combine searing text, bold physicality and original music to bring Kipling’s ground-breaking novella to life, in a thrilling new play exploring Britain’s colonial legacy in the Middle East.
