After a successful first run at the Alexander Bar, The King Makers transferred to the Fugard Theatre. It enjoyed a successful second season with its first performance at the Fugard on 23 February 2016.
The King Makersis set in the familiar world of skullduggery, backstabbing, one-upmanship, disloyalty, blackmail and profiteering, otherwise known as South African politics. Our three heroes spend their days ensuring the system works for no one except the lucky few or those who can afford to do as they please. But after years of working in the dark and the cold, financially speaking, they conspire to get something for themselves, whether it be gold or power. Preferably both.
