The King's Face by Steven Young at Lion and Unicorn


The King's Face, by Steven Young, at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, a pub fringe venue in Kentish Town, north London, from 31 May to 3 July 2011.

Starring Graham Bowe (John Bradmore), David Trosko (Prince Harry).

A true story of 7 days at Kenilworth castle that changed history.

The two-man play begins following the Battle of Shrewsbury where Prince Harry of Monmouth, having won the day for his father, King Henry IV, is struck in the face with an armour-piercing arrow. The Prince is given up for dead when John Bradmore, a London surgeon, is sent to examine the young royal as a last resort. Over the course of several days, the pair develops a father and son relationship, while examining questions of terrorism, war, religion, patriotism and what it means to lead a nation.
