Olivier and Tony Award-winning writer Terry Johnson pays tribute to the truly original and unclassifiable Ken Campbell - maverick writer and theatre director, legendary practical joker and 'one of the strangest people in Britain' (The Guardian).
Ken is the retelling of an extraordinary friendship from beginning to end, replete with wickedly funny anecdotes, magnificent hoaxes, and general chaotic lunacy - all infused with the spirit of the great man …
The bad news is; we can all be done under the Public Mischief Act of 1872.
The good news is; the posters are ready!
A 23 year old aspiring playwright in a rundown flat-share off the North End Road is wrestling with his masterpiece for the Royal Court.

But even once this information is imparted, the man at the other end doesn't hang up.
He's called Ken.
And he's about to change the young man's life forever.
