Three Kingdoms, which takes the detectives through Germany and Estonia, is performed by an international cast using all three languages.
Three Kingdoms plays at the Lyric Hammersmith as part of World Stages London.
Three Kingdoms contains strong language, nudity and adult content. It is suitable for theatregoers aged 16 and older.
