Synopsis

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. Tied to Jamaica by his father who was born there, James struggles to lead a proper investigation when gang leader, Joker, is brought into custody. The play comes to a climax when two police officers are kidnapped, uncovering corruption hidden in a corner of the sun-bleached island.



Roy Williams's police-corruption drama received its world premiere at Theatre Royal Stratford East, London - where Williams's first play, The No Boys Cricket Club, was produced in 1996 - on 28 March 2014, starring Goldie as Joker.
