Kevin, King of Egypt is about an escaped psychiatric patient Kevin Haggerty who is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of an Egyptian pharaoh.

The Golden Lion Tap was packed for the King of Egypt’s show; there was a buzz of anticipation among the audience and rightly so, as Rob Gee is a fantastically talented performer, comedian and poet.
The energy levels Gee brought to stage gave life to all the characters, with a variety of voices and facial expressions to make each one unique. The script too was superb, with subtle but effective rhyme and rhythm that may not be immediately noticeable, and some inventive metaphors that I won’t mention here for fear of censorship.
Several stories ran parallel alongside each other, each with their own quirky heroes, intertwining as the show progressed. Although the specifics of the storyline may not exactly be relatable to the average audience member – do you know anyone who believes they are the reincarnation of Ramesses II? – the themes that run throughout will strike a chord with all, such as family, relationships and recovery.
If you’re in need of a laugh and an insight into the minds of these extraordinary personalities, head on down to the Golden Lion Tap to see this hilarious show! It’s on Sunday at 5pm.
