The Boy King

‘I’m Jordan. I’m 28. I’m autistic, and I love history. I’m a tour guide at the museum…but I’m not supposed to be in here…’

On his lunch break, Jordan can’t help sneaking into the museum store room to explore…but it’s not long before he’s carried away on an ancient expedition of immersive storytelling and imagination.

An autobiographical, vibrant and educational one man show celebrating 100 years since the discovery of Tutenkhamun’s Tomb. Get to know The Boy King, the team who excavated his tomb and Jordan – A boy whose love of history transformed his life growing up with Autism.

Packed with playful characters, fun and facts, this relaxed performance is perfect for families, lovers of history and Neurodivergent audiences.

Discover Ancient Egypt

RAWD and Jordon Connerty visited The Atkinson in 2022 during the research and development phase of the performance. They immersed themselves in the ancient Egyptian artefacts on display in the Museum and visited the Studio to contemplate the character development for the show.
