The Brief Life and Mysterious Death of Boris III, King of Bulgaria: Part The First

Out Of The Forest Theatre's new play sets out to investigate the suspicious circumstances of our unlikely hero’s demise. I mean, it wasn’t every day that someone stood up to the Führer...

Expect satire, revisionist history and live Bulgarian folk tunes as we explore the history of Boris and a nation that stood up to power and fought to save the lives of their Jewish countrymen, women and children.

Out Of The Forest Theatre returns to VAULT Festival after their sold out, Off West End Award-nominated CALL ME FURY and the multiple award-winning BURY THE HATCHET.

By March 2020, here’s hoping every Boris is history.
