KHT50: Like Dolls or Angels by Stephen Jeffreys

KHT50: Like Dolls or Angels by Stephen Jeffreys

Hannigan and Zuki want to get into the Guiness Book of Records. Well, Hannigan does and Zuki is his golden goose. With his band of talented women – including a harem of Death Wall motorbike performers – Hannigan is determined to make his fortune. But will everyone survive his ambition? 

Like Dolls or Angels was Stephen Jeffreys’ first play. After winning The Sunday Times Playwriting Award at the National Student Drama Festival, this one act play transferred to the King’s Head in 1977. 

Please join us for a post show discussion with Oliver Award Winning playwright and Dramaturg April De Angelis and special guests.

This play was written in 1977, and as such some of the language present is a reflection of that time and may cause offense.

This is a professional reading of the production followed by a special post-show event. The 'KHT50 Barstools to Broadway' Festival is a week-long celebration marking the successes of the King's Head Theatre. We are looking back at the last 50 years and highlighting successful writers and creators who came through our doors, many of whom started their careers at the King's Head Theatre. Any profits will be going towards the move to the new building in 2022.
