About This Show

Rudyard Kipling’s The Man Who Would Be King spins a fantastical yarn about two rambunctious ex-British Army sergeants who dream up a scheme to fleece the kingdom of Kafiristan. But power corrupts when Danny and Peachy, mistaken for gods, start to believe that they can actually rule the kingdom. This captivating production is adapted for the stage by Aquila Theatre Company, praised by the New York Times for their “iconoclastic and high-voltage energy.”
