An exclusive world premiere of ‘Dream of a King’ a one-man play written
and performed by Christopher Tajah (directed by Bernie C. Byrnes), depicting Martin Luther King Jr, on the night he was assassinated.
Tajah’s performance has been hailed as “mesmerising” and “powerful”.
Black Cultural Archives “Compelling” Artistic director Playground Theatre

Debuting at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2019, this simply staged play aims to inform and reveal the man behind the icon, by touching on his early life, relationships, strengths, successes, weaknesses, failures, fears and his world changing impact.

Many of the issues Martin fought for all his adult life such as ‘racial equality’ must still be fought today. ‘Dream of a King’ gives the audience a unique opportunity to witness King’s passion, inspiration, dedication, philosophy and vision. This must-see production also aims to educate, inspire and empower a new generation.

The play features a special appearance by Queen of Lover's Rock - Paulette Tajah, who will be singing live.

There will be a short 10 minutes Q&A after the Wednesday Performance. 
We do not accept Amex.
