The Last King of Scotland at Crucible Theatre

THE first stage adaptation of The Last King of Scotland has opened at the Crucible Theatre.

Following on from the success of Sheffield Theatre's Life of Pi and Standing at the Sky's Edge, this latest homegrown production is hotly-anticipated.

Based on the award-winning novel that inspired the Oscar-winning movie, The Last King of Scotland is an electrifying thriller about corruption and complicity.

Idi Amin is the self-declared President of Uganda. When Scottish medic Nicholas Garrigan becomes his personal physician, he is catapulted into Amin's inner circle. 

A useful asset for the British Secret Service, is Garrigan the man on the inside, or does he have blood on his hands too?

The Last King of Scotland is in the Crucible until Saturday, October 19.
