King Hamlin

King Hamlin is the brand-new play from the team that presented Bullet Hole, by Gloria Williams, in 2018.

Hamlin, Quinn and Nigel are friends and young Londoners trying to get ahead in the inner city.

After his dad dies, Hamlin’s goal is to keep off the streets, get a good job after school and build a better life for him and his mum. When live-wire Quinn and troubled Nigel offer Hamlin easy money in return for some county line drug trafficking, his dreams and the friendship of the three are put to the test. Will Hamlin stand his ground or end up on the wrong side of the tracks?

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.
