The King of Taking

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Clown
New Zealand • Australian Premiere

Presented by: A Mulled Whine Productions

Roll out the royal red carpet! One is cordially invited to the Australian premiere of 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 Pianist), The King of Taking boasts circus, mime, and a whole lot of velvet. 

Following rollicking performances across New Zealand - you will be among the very first loyal Australian subjects of this royally riotous new show.

“It’s fun. It’s really, really fun. We’re comfortable, we’re in stitches, this guy is great.” - Art Murmurs

Please note: The performance on Feb 15 has changed times from 2:00pm to 11:45am since the Adelaide Fringe Guide was printed.

Presented by: Kallo Collective & A Mulled Whine

For extra fun, the King requests some wrapped gifts from his subjects (you). These can be any unwanted items and will be used as part of the show.
