King is a love letter to the legendary Freddie Mercury; but the story of this enormous showman is also a tragic one, and fittingly, this new one-woman show from Claire Willoughby explores trauma through the demise of an impersonator.
Investigating notions of transformation, obsession and self-obliteration, King questions where the boundary between private and public personas lies, and what happens when alter-ego and ego collide.
