Roll out the royal red carpet! One is cordially invited to Thom Monckton’s newest physical comedy.
Allergic to normal flooring, a childish and petulant King can only walk on red carpet – and cannot move without an effective fanfare. You are hereby summoned to the royal grounds where this King callously barrels towards his own destruction.
A brand-new show from acclaimed physical comedy performer Thom Monckton (The Artist), The King of Taking boasts circus, mime, and a whole lot of velvet. Performing in Wellington for one week only at Circa Theatre!
Royal decree: The King requests a selection of wrapped gifts from his most loyal subjects (you).*
*Bearing Gifts discount price available for those who bring a wrapped present.
“It’s fun. It’s really, really fun. We’re comfortable, we’re in stitches, this guy is great.”
— Art Murmurs
“Monckton is amazing to watch, his body seemingly not constrained by the usual restrictions of bones and gravity”
— Otago Daily Times
