The bad news is; we can all be done under the Public Mischief Act of 1872. The good news is; the posters are ready!

1978, London. A 23 year old aspiring playwright in a rundown flat-share off the North End Road is wrestling with his masterpiece for the Royal Court. The house phone rings, the young man answers… a call for the person who used to occupy his room, recently moved to Amsterdam. But even once this information is imparted, the man at the other end refuses to hang up. His name is Ken. And he’s about to change the young man’s life forever...

Tribute to the truly original and unclassifiable Ken Campbell.

“Stockwell’s uncanny portrayal... gets to the heart of the man, yet never descends to caricature.... Laugh-a-minute.”

Dave Hollander (The Stage)

“The man himself comes back to life in an extraordinary assumption by Stockwell, a mime, mimic and clown... A scabrous romp.”

Mark Valencia (What's On Stage)

“One discerns, slowly at first, then with great clarity, Ken's unique sense of what theatre could actually do... Fun.”

Gary Naylor (Broadway World)

“Captivating.. Johnson takes us through his own early misadventures with this extravagantly eyebrowed, esoteric energiser.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Many eccentricities... A genial, funny and occasionally very rude evening... Stockwell gives an uncannily believable portrayal.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)
