Car Park King

A new original comedy about the life of King Richard 3rd by Jessica McDonagh
Add a drop of Monty Python, a dash of Blackadder and a sprinkle of Spike Milligan and you have a side-splitting, bizarre, unmissable comedy that is ‘Car Park King.’
Awoken from his Car park tomb go back in time and follow Richard as he tries to stop a curse and protect his two nephews from danger.
Sounds simple enough? Think again.
From witches, human birds, flamboyant French kings, no-nonsense policemen, murderers, salesmen, lizards, messengers and magical mushrooms. Richard’s journey won’t be easy…but it will be entertaining!
