The Kings of Kilburn High Road

Saturday March 17th

Lislea Dramatic Players, Co. Armagh (Confined)

“The Kings of the Kilburn High Road” by Jimmy Murphy

Six young Irishmen immigrate to London in the early 1970s with the intention of returning to Ireland as successful men. Now, twenty something years later and still in London, five of them gather in a side room of a pub for an informal wake for one of their friends. All but one (who now owns his own construction company) are broken men from years of hard work and harder drinking.

History of the Group
Lislea Dramatic Players were formed in 1940, performing plays for the local community year on year. Since 2008 they have played on the festival circuit with some success. They trust audiences will enjoy Murphy’s ‘The Kings’ as much as they have enjoyed staging it.
