THE KING by Jimmy Lyons (Adelaide Fringe 2020)

Red Phoenix Theatre is thrilled to announce our Adelaide Fringe debut in 2020.

THE KING is a hilarious modern day roast of the importance of status and power in everyday life.

Roger likes to believe he is the King of his domain; then during a harmless stroll through a department store he meets Hank, a virtuoso BBQ salesman. Hank unscrupulously persuades Roger to ‘make the best purchase’ he will ever make and buy the world’s greatest BBQ, the ‘King’ grill.

Roger’s life is turned into a tumultuous grab for the remains of his charred manhood and burnt marriage.

How do you convince a man to buy something he doesn’t need? Remind him what it means to be a man.

The King is written by Texas-born, Adelaidean playwright, Jimmy Lyons. Lyons’ previous play Alter Ego received brilliant reviews in the 2013 Adelaide Fringe and enjoyed a long sold-out run in Los Angeles & New York.

Directed by Adrian Barnes and starring Michael Eustice, Sharon Malujlo, and Nigel Tripodi.

***WARNING*** The King contains frequent course language and strong sexual references.

Red Phoenix Theatre is very grateful for the ongoing and amazing support we receive from Holden Street Theatres as their resident theatre company.
