Off The King's Road at Jermyn Street Theatre
Neil Koenigsberg's debut play, Off The King's Road, will run at the Jermyn Street Theatre in central London from 1 to 25 June 2016, with an official opening on 3 June.
The play will be directed by Alan Cohen, with set and costume design by Claire Lyth. The cast includes Michael Brandon (Matt Browne), Cherie Lunghi (Ellen) and Luke Pitman (Freddie).
Synposis: "After his wife’s recent passing, retired American Matt Browne takes a week’s respite in his favourite city, London. Checking into a small hotel, off the King’s Road, his stay unexpectedly turns into a voyage of self-discovery: life, death and the whole damn thing."
Writer Lee Tannen says: " For years now I have loved all things London. My play conjures up the small hotels I've stayed at. My main character appropriately checks into intimate lodgings – it’s his first time in such an environment after years of staying in the city's larger, iconic places. In writing this play, I had a lot of fun with Matt desiring to partake in numerous cultural activities reflecting some of the things that I find so satisfying."
The production, which has previously enjoyed successful fringe runs in New York and Los Angeles, is produced by Underground Management in association with Jermyn Street Theatre.
