Best Seat in Your House

Watch Changing Destiny live online via our immersive, multi-camera broadcast, Best Seat in Your House, designed to give you optimal choice as you watch a live show.

Enjoy the Director's Chair with our Best Seat in Your House player, where you can control multiple live camera streams. Alternatively, choose our Director’s Cut option and sit back as we deliver a more traditional live edit of the show from the theatre to your screen.

Follow the adventures of the Warrior King, Sinuhe, in Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri’s bold new adaptation of one of the world’s first known stories, written over 4,000 years ago.

Forced to flee Egypt, Sinuhe is captured as a prisoner of war by the foreign Kingdom of Retenu. Stripped of status and tormented by memories, it is going to take all of Sinuhe’s will to survive as a stranger in an unknown land. 

Cast members Joan Iyiola and Ashley Zhangazha will share the role of Sinuhe, with a game played on stage at the start of each performance to decide who will play the role.
