Follow the adventures of the Warrior King, Sinuhe, in Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri’s bold new adaptation of one of the world’s first known stories, written over 4,000 years ago.

Forced to flee Egypt, Sinuhe is captured as a prisoner of war by the foreign Kingdom of Retenu. Stripped of status and tormented by memories, it is going to take all of Sinuhe’s will to survive as a stranger in an unknown land.

Cast members Joan Iyiola and Ashley Zhangazha will share the role of Sinuhe, with a game played on stage at the start of each performance to decide who will play the role.
