Opened 28 Mar 2014
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Set in modern day Jamaica, Kingston 14 follows the story of James, a black British police officer who is sent to Kingston to investigate the murder of an English tourist in a local hotel. Deeply tied to Jamaica by his father who was born there, he struggles to lead a proper investigation when gang leader Joker is brought into custody. The play comes to a climax when two police offers are kidnapped, uncovering corruption hidden in a corner of the sun bleached island.
