In oppressive darkness, successful novelist Stephen King sits on his throne mapping out a new story of the macabre. But there is a problem; he's stuck. Writer's block has set in. But soon familiar voices offer advice and King begins to type: the flow comes and goes just as distractions and inspirations surface - then disappear then reappear. Real life begins to merge with his creative stream of consciousness and his creations start to mirror and comment on his own existence in a terrifying downward spiral. This is the script of an original Play by Lee Gambin.
+++ REVIEWS: A wonderful look into the thin line that divides reality from illusion, The King of Bangor is an unsettling tale of what can happen when creation surpasses creator. --Heather Bloom, AustralianStage.com
Although marketed to horror fans this play does have broader appeal. It is insightful, surprisingly funny at points and delightfully inter-textual. It is not a comfortable place to be sitting as Stephen King at his typewriter, but it sure is an absolute pleasure to sit in the audience and watch as both the play and his sanity unfold. --theatre-of-words.blogspot.com
For long time King fans or those mostly unfamiliar with the author s work, King of Bangor grabs the viewer pulling them through a psychological journey of creativity. --All Star Comics, Melbourne
