Six friends. One big adventure.
Life isn’t easy on the Crongton Estate and for McKay and his mates it’s all about keeping their heads down. But when a friend finds herself in trouble, they set out on a mission that goes further than any of them imagined.
Crongton Knights will take you on a night of madcap adventure as McKay and his friends, ‘The Magnificent Six’, encounter the dangers and triumphs of a mission gone awry. In this world premiere adaptation of Alex Wheatle’s award-winning novel, the pulse of the city is alive on stage with a soundscape of beatboxing and vocals laid down by the cast and created by acclaimed musician Conrad Murray.
Crongton Knights is about the friends you’ll never forget and how lessons learned the hard way can bring you closer together.
“Alex Wheatle is an inspirer. He is a vital writer. He is a prince among men. Long may he reign.” Lemn Sissay
