Three Irishmen. Digging. Telling tales to put down the day.

But as they dig down, long buried secrets begin to emerge and the story they tell is as dark as the earth itself. It’s a tale full of rich and striking characters. The Kingdom vividly captures life as an Irish navvy in the last century – a time of immigration, violence, sex, triumph and, ultimately, tragedy.

Rooted in the dramas of ancient Greece ‘The Kingdom’ is Colin Teevan’s haunting and lyrical new play and his first collaboration with award winning director Lucy Pitman-Wallace.

Suitable for ages 14+
