Directed by Lara Genovese , King Hamlin is the brand-new play from the team that presented Bullet Hole, by Gloria Williams, in 2018.
Hamlin, Quinn and Nic are young friends trying to get ahead in inner city London.
After his dad dies, Hamlin’s goal is to finish school, get a good job, and build a better life for himself and his mum, Mama H. When live-wire Quinn and troubled Nic offer Hamlin easy money in return for some county line drug trafficking, his dreams, his mother’s hopes and the friendship of the three are put to the test. Will Hamlin stand his ground or end up on the wrong side of the tracks?
In a maze of inequality, unemployment and gang culture, it’s a struggle to know where to make a right turn and how to undo a wrong one.
