“The dialogue ripples with energy.” – The Spectator
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.
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.
King Hamlin is the winner of best full-length stage play at 2022 Scriptwriters & Co International Festival. It premiered at London’s Park Theatre on 19th October 2022.
