Production images released for Pilot Theatre’s ‘Crongton Knights’
Production images have been released for the UK Tour of Crongton Knights. Touring to The Lowry in Salford from Tuesday 10 – Saturday 14 March.
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 Knight’s cast will feature Olisa Odele (Ola in Chewing Gum, E4 and PC Merrick in Scarborough, BBC) as McKay; Kate Donnachie (Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster, Battersea Arts Centre Beatbox Academy) as Bushkid; Zac Douglas as Bit; Simi Egbejumi-David (Shit-Faced Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet, Magnificent Bastard Production and Around the World in 80 Days, Kenny Wax Family Entertainment & Simon Friend) as Festus; Aimee Powell (Freeman, Strictly Arts Theatre Company and Over The Too, Belgrade Theatre) as Venetia; Khai Shaw (Little Baby Jesus, Orange Tree Theatre ) as Jonah; Marcel White (Freeman, Strictly Arts Theatre Company) as Nesta and Nigar Yeva (Give Me, Soho Theatre) as Saira.
