‘King Hedley II: Lenny Henry in August Wilson’s ferocious exploration of redemption in 1980’s America’

Friday 17th May – Saturday 15th June 2019 @ Theatre Royal Stratford East, Gerry Raffles Square, London E15 1BN

1980s Pittsburgh, a city in decay. Against the backdrop of Reagan’s America, King, an ex-con, is trying to rebuild his life and start a family.

He’s got hopes and dreams of opening a video store and building a new life. If only he can get ten thousand dollars together, if only he can catch a break. In his dusty backyard he plots and plans with his friend Mister, but is this all a pipe dream?

Featuring Lenny Henry as smooth-talking hustler Elmore, August Wilson’s touching and angry King Hedley II is a quest for redemption for one man and a whole community.
