National treasure Lenny Henry is coming to Stratford!

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

Featured in August Wilson’s touching and ferocious drama as smooth- talking hustler Elmore, Lenny Henry will be making his Stratford East debut, joined on stage by Casualty’s Martina Laird. In 1980s Pittsburgh, we follow King, an ex-con, trying to salvage his life after prison. He has huge hopes and big dreams but how far will he go to try and achieve them?

King Hedley II is a quest for redemption for one man and a whole community dying to be heard.

£10 tickets are still available but they sell out quickly so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
