Kevin, King of Egypt
October 5 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm£7.50
Kevin, King of Egypt by Rob Gee | Oct 5th | £7.50
Comic, poet and ex-psychiatric nurse Rob Gee presents a fifty-minute solo show, followed by either a Q and A and/or a performance of poems, the selection of which is requested by the audience.
Escaped psychiatric patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of the pharaoh Ramses II. On his way to Egypt, via the Tesco Express, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie – a lost six-year-old. Together they embark on a journey that will change both their lives forever.
The poems chosen in the second half all have a theme of mental health.
Strong language. Recommended age 16+
Written and performed by comic, poet and psychiatric nurse Rob Gee (“Seriously funny – Sunday Mirror), fresh from a sold out run across North America.
