King by Pat Kinevane

Esker Arts is delighted to welcome King, by Pat Kinevane on Sat 3rd June 2023.

King tells the story of Luther, a man from Cork named in honour of his Granny Bee Baw’s hero, Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Luther only leaves his apartment for essential journeys, and to perform as an Elvis impersonator.

The play explores prejudice, privilege, and resilience, as Luther struggles to live life to the full.

This production was developed with the support of Nasc Network Commission and Georganne Aldrich Heller.
