Trivia

Created as a paean to the King's Head Theatre founder, this title is used as a fund raiser for the perennially financially strapped theatre. Although the title of the documentary is 'The King's Head: A Maverick in London', the title was changed to 'A Maverick in London: The Story of the King's Head Theatre' on the cover of the DVD. This causes some confusion. It is usually sold under the name 'A Maverick in London: The Story of the King's Head Theatre', but otherwise called 'The King's Head: A Maverick in London'. See more »
