A play for four actors
Arthur is dying. As absolute ruler, his death risks plunging the country into chaos. Summoned as a last resort, a doctor will try and save him by using the one resource he hasn’t exploited yet – the very minds and bodies of his two sons. As the last loyal general tries to keep the revolution outside at bay, Arthur, Barrico and Christoff will battle each other and the doctor for not only their lives, but the country’s future.
But what is that in Barrico’s case? What is the ultimate weapon that will bring peace to the country, and why is everyone so scared of it?
A fast paced comedy where family means everything and nothing, and loyalty to your country is only skin deep, Head of State is perfect for small stages and imaginative directors.
