King Hedley II tickets are now available for August Wilson’s King Hedley II featuring Lenny Henry at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.
Known as one of August Wilson’s darkest plays and the 9th in his 10 part cycle on the conditions of African Americans living in the United States during the 20th century, King Hedley II makes its way to London’s Theatre Royal Stratford East.
In the 1980s Pittsburg was a city in shambles. In Reagan’s America the economy is not looking good. King is an ex-con looking to start his life over again and start a family of his own.
King is a man with a plan. He’s going to open a video store and build a new life for himself. All he needs to do is pull together ten thousand dollars and he can set out on his new path. In his barren backyard King and his friend, Mister, try to work out a plan, but can his dream become a reality?
Beloved comedian and actor Lenny Henry features in King Hedley II as silver-tongued hustler Elmore. August Wilson’s moving play is real, angry, and touching-a journey for one man, and a whole community to find redemption.
