A gripping new police corruption drama from the BAFTA award-winning and Olivier-nominated playwright Roy Williams (Offside BBC, Sukerpunch).


Set in modern day Jamaica, KINGSTON 14 follows the story of James, a British police officer, who is sent to Kingston to investigate the murder of a UK tourist. James struggles to lead a proper investigation when gang leader Joker, played by Goldie (British music artist, DJ, visual artist and actor: credits include The World Is Not Enough, Guy Ritchie’s Snatch), is brought into custody. The play comes to a climax when two police officers are kidnapped, uncovering corruption in a hidden corner of the sun bleached island.


Directed by Clint Dyer (Olivier-nominated The Big Life, The Westbridge) and designed by the Olivier award winning designer ULTZ (Mojo, Jerusalem, Pied Piper, The Harder They Come) KINGSTON 14 will have you on the edge of your seat.


Cast includes Brian Bovell (Richard Curtis’ Love Actually), Trevor Laird (Dr Who) and EastEnders’ Charles Venn.
