Last of the Boys by Steven Dietz at the Southwark
Sarah Stribley Productions and Anna Haigh Productions in association with Alchemist Theatricals will present the European premiere of Steven Dietz's drama Last of the Boys at the Southwark Playhouse from 11 May to 4 June 2016 with an official opening on 13 May 2016.
"It's the final summer of the twentieth century: The Rolling Stones are on tour and, somewhere in the Great Central Valley of California, Ben's trailer is the last one standing. Ben and Jeeter fought together in Vietnam. For thirty years they have been united by a war that divided the world. Just as their reunion is getting underway, they are interrupted by Jeeter's new girlfriend and her mother in hot pursuit. As the night deepens, their shared past is thrown into focus, bringing its ghosts vividly to life. A fierce, funny, haunting play about a friendship forged by war and tested by time."
This new production will be directed by John Haidar with designs by Max Dorey, lighting design by Christopher Nairne and sound design by Max Perryment.
Playwright Steven Dietz recently came eighth on the list of the Top Ten Most Produced Playwrights in America, tied with Edward Albee and Tennessee Williams. The play was originally presented by Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 2005.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
