Overview

‘The bad news is; we can all be done under the Public Mischief Act of 1872. The good news is; the posters are ready!’

Terry Johnson returns to the boards with his interrupted monologue KEN: a freewheeling reminiscence of his turbulent and inspiring relationship with the truly original and unclassifiable theatre maverick Ken Campbell. Aided and abetted by Jeremy Stockwell, Terry pays tribute to the legendary seeker, fearsome goader, and unique comedic thinker. For ninety intriguing, amusing, occasionally alarming minutes, audiences are invited to share Ken’s idiosyncratic perspective on life, and to muse on how one might live it.
