The Last King Of Scotland


The Last King Of Scotland

Sheffield Crucible

The Last King of Scotland is a riveting account of power and responsibility; this stage version offers an electrifying tale of complicity with atrocity. Stripping the novel back to its core, itl focuses on the relationship between the hapless ambiguous physician Nicholas Garrigan and the capricious psychotic yet charming figure of Idi Amin.

The theatrical version re-tells a story that speaks to an age of Islamic State and the war on Terror as much as its original context; The Last King of Scotland offers a darkly comic, even poetic fable for the stage.

The production featured Game of Thrones actor Daniel Portman.
