This Was The World and I Was King - Jack Studio


HookHitch Theatre will present This Was The World and I Was King by Casey Jay Andrews and Nathan Foad at the Jack Studio Theatre in Brockley, south London, from 2 to 20 February 2016, with an official opening on 4 February 2016.

Directed by David Thackeray, the production features original compositions by George Jennings along with puppetry Design by Casey Jay Andrews and lighting design by Laura Trundle.
