Simon Stephens

Published by Methuen

Large Mixed Cast
A blackly entertaining and unsettling detective story cum parable about the devil in us all, international human trafficking and the changing state of Europe

The severed human head of an Estonian woman is found in the river Thames and two British detectives set off in search of her origins in Europe and how she came to be found dead

Accompanied by a mephistophelian German detective acting as their guide, they gradually sink deeper and deeper into the world of prostitution and international human trafficking

Fighting to cross international borders and language barriers, they enter a nightmarish world that will change one of them forever

Three Kingdoms tells the stories of trafficked women, the gangs and the police forces across Europe that attempt to control them

This edition also includes a preface with contributions from playwright Simon Stephens, German director Sebastian Nuebling and Estonian dramaturg Eero Epner, discussing this uniquely collaborative and tri-lingual project
