Reviews are in for Steve Waters’ LAST KING OF SCOTLAND at Sheffield’s Crucible

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



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.
