The Kingdom

by Colin Teevan
Binding: PaperBack | Page extent: 96

ISBN: 9781849434874



“I was never part of any gang that killed a man”

Three Irishmen. Digging. Telling tales to put down the day. But as they dig down, long buried secrets begin to emerge and the story they tell is as dark as the earth itself. It’s a tale full of rich and striking characters which vividly captures life as an Irish navvy in the last century ‐ a world of immigration, violence, sex, triumph and, ultimately, tragedy.

Rooted in the dramas of ancient Greece, The Kingdom, the latest play by acclaimed playwright Colin Teevan is both haunting and lyrical.

Press Comment

 

'[a] lyrical and elliptical reworking of the Oedipus myth for Irish navvies in England' - Evening Standard

'powerful' - Metro (London)

'written with a sinewy, musical eloquence…a play that movingly presents Irishness as the state of being nowhere at home' - Independent

'The writing is often rich and peaty as it details the hard lives of men who make a living by breaking rocks' - Guardian
