In Arabia We'd All Be Kings
Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis
Directed by Vik Sivalingam
Performed by our final year BA (Hons) Professional Acting students in The Carne Studio Theatre
When recently released ex-convict Lenny returns to his old New York neighbourhood he discovers the mayor’s clean-up of the city has created an aura of hopeless desperation among his old friends. With most of his old neighbours driven out by gentrification, those who remain congregate in a bar in Hell’s Kitchen. But as New York’s real estate boom kicks in, the bar is set to be sold. Stephen Adly Guirgis’ social tragedy underscores the human need for stability.
Guirgis is an American playwright, screenwriter, director, and actor. He is a member and a former co-artistic director of New York City's LAByrinth Theater Company. His play Between Riverside and Crazy won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. His other plays include Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train (recently revived to great acclaim at the Young Vic) and The Motherf**ker with the Hat.
