The Making of Frederick the Great

Larkey Kindred Productions

Out of 117 billion people who have ever lived on this earth, only 38 have been bestowed the title of ‘the Great’ in history.

So, what the hell does it even mean to be great? How does a man forced to join the military by his father become admired by Napoleon? A man transform an insignificant country into a European superpower? A man born into a world that killed men for loving each other, find love? And what is the cost of greatness? This new play explores the tumultuous rise of Europe’s most formidable monarch, Frederick the Great.

The Making of Frederick the Great places this true love story at the heart of history, boldly redefining the narrative of what it means to be great.
