Frank Sent Me at London King's Head Theatre

Frank Sent Me at London King's Head Theatre

All the best to ALRA students Emaleigh Pightling and Ricky McFadden who will be stage managing Frank Sent Me at the King's Head Theatre from 17th - 22nd August. This brilliant theatre piece will also be starring soon-to-be third-year student Rohan Nedd and is directed by ALRA's very own teacher Peter Darney.

About the play

An East End gangster and his 'friend' await an irrevocably life-changing visit. Chaos ensues as Frank sends a boy to do a man's job. In this bleak comedy, a cast of three explores the importance of keeping up appearances and what happens when an honour code is broken. Having taken the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe by storm, the winner of the Writer's Avenue Best Play Prize at the Soho Theatre, 'Frank Sent Me', will play a strictly limited run.


With astounding reviews already received from this year's Brighton and Edinburgh fringe festivals, you can't afford to miss this production.
