Escaped psychiatric patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being detained in hospital and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of an Egyptian pharaoh. On his way to Egypt, via the 7-11, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie - a lost but exuberant six year old. Together they embark on a journey that will change both their lives forever.

Kevin, King of Egypt is is the new show from UK stand up poet Rob Gee. Rob spent 12 years working as a registered psychiatric nurse around the UK and Australia before becoming a full-time writer and performer. Working mainly in acute psychiatry, he has also worked in child and adolescent units, drug and alcohol services, eating disorders, early psychosis intervention and psychiatric intensive care.

Kevin, the show’s central character, has a diagnosis of bipolar illness. Rob explains: “When I first wrote the show I ran it past several ex-patients, people that I used to nurse. I couldn’t have done it without them. It was good to catch up and reminisce about old times!” Now the National Health Service in the UK have enlisted Rob to incorporate the show into a training session for clinical staff. Rob says: "So audiences of nurses, clinicians and managers see the show and then I lead discussions in how they could have responded to various events in the plot."
