These people who walk past us all day will happily send £10 a month to Oxfam...but you could be freezing to death right in front of them and they'll walk past you.

Bess and Hannah are waiting. Sleeping rough on the streets of London they’re hoping for help to arrive and for life to change, but they’ve been waiting for a long time.Until, that is, they meet Caz, a young woman who's not content to sit quietly, she’s far more interested in taking what she needs. As Bess and Hannah get drawn further into this new way of thinking they discover a power in their position that opens up a world of change.

Published to coincide with Smoke & Oakum’s award-winning new production, Kings originally ran at the 2017 VAULT Festival before transferring to the New Diorama Theatre in October 2017.
