About RoosevElvis

The Royal Court Theatre presents RoosevElvis, a creative new work by Brooklyn-based ensemble The Team.

Directed by Rachel Chankin, RoosevElvis plays from 21 October 2015 until 11 Noveber 2015 at the Royal Court Theatre.


On a hallucinatory road trip from the Badlands to Graceland, the spirits of Elvis Presley and Theodore Roosevelt battle over the soul of Ann, a painfully shy meat-processing plant worker, and what kind of man or woman Ann should become.

Set against the boundless blue skies of the Great Plains and endless American highway, RoosevElvis is a new work about gender, appetite, and the multitudes we contain.
The TEAM is a Brooklyn-based ensemble dedicated to creating new work about the experience of living in America today.


RoosevElvis is performed by Libby King and Kristen Sieh.


The TEAM’s RoosevElvis is written by Rachel Chavkin, Libby King, Jake Margolin, and Kristen Sieh. Created in collaboration with Matt Hubbs, Andrew Schneider, and Nick Vaughan. Rachel Chavkin directs.

Directed by Rachel Chavkin with scenic design by Nick Vaughan, lighting by Austin Smith, sound design by Matt Hubbs, video design by Andrew Schneider and costume by Kristen Sieh.


★★★★ “The TEAM’s two-hander takes a trip to Graceland with Elvis and Teddy Roosevelt in this ebullient dissection of gender identity and the American dream”  “a two-hander with glorious echoes of Thelma and Louise” The Guardian
★★★★ “technically dazzling .. a subtle, profoundly emotional.. performance.. that lays bare the soul of America as a land full of heroes that is also a very lonely place to be.” Daily Telegraph
