WhatsOnStage, Ron Simpson, 4*:

Above all, Waters and Obisesan exercise masterly control of tone, from entertainment to tragedy, from eccentric comedy to the heart of darkness

The Stage, Jon Murphy, 4*:

Steve Waters’ stage adaptation is inevitably a different beast to Kevin Macdonald’s 2006 film, but the story’s power remains undimmed

Broadway World, Ruth Deller, 4*

an engaging watch with a standout performance

 

ADAPTED FOR THE STAGE BY STEVE WATERS

Based on the novel by Giles Foden

Starring Tobi Bamtefa and Daniel Portman

‘He is the sickness and you maintain that sickness’

Idi Amin is the self-declared President of Uganda. When Scottish medic Nicholas Garrigan becomes his personal physician, he is catapulted into Amin’s inner circle. A useful asset for the British Secret Service, is Garrigan the man on the inside, or does he have blood on his hands too?

The first adaptation of the award-winning novel that inspired the Oscar-winning movie, THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND is an electrifying thriller about corruption and complicity.
