The Emperor

Ryszard Kapuscinski (adapted by Colin Teevan)

The Emperor tells the story of the downfall of Emperor Halle Selassie I of Ethiopia and with it the end of a three-thousand-year-old monarchy that traced it origins back to King Solomon.   

Based on the extraordinary book by legendary Polish journalist, Ryszard Kapuscinski, it is told from the unique perspective of the Emperor's former servants, courtiers and ministers. It  is a compelling exploration of the nature of power and loyalty.

This adaptation and production is from the team that created the international hit Kafka's Monkey which also starred the master of transformation Kathryn Hunter.
