Strangers in Between and Adam and Eve and Steve at King's Head Theatre
Two new productions announced for The King's Head pub theatre
The King's Head Pub Theatre in Islington, north London, has announced two further productions in its 2017 season.
The season begins with a revival production of Strangers In Between by Australian writer Tommy Murphy which runs from 10 January to 4 February 2017, with an official opening on 11 January 2017. Directed by Adam Spreadbury-Maher it stars Roly Botha (Shane), Dan Hunter (Will and Ben) and Stephen Connery-Brown (Peter).
"The cute but nervy sixteen year old Shane has fled his rural hometown for the glitz, glamour and glory of Sydney’s King’s Cross. Adrift among the lonely hearts and new temptations, he attempts to navigate the troubled waters of his past toward a happier future. Strangers In Between is an unflinching look at the highs and lows of growing up gay in modern Australia, fit to burst with laugh-out-loud one liners, simmering sexual tension and heartfelt confessions. Its story is universal, it is a coming of age story about friendship across generations and how our past can come back to haunt us."
Flying Entertainment and AES in association with The King’s Head will then present Adam & Eve... and Steve, a brand new musical farce set in a newly created paradise, the Garden of Eden which runs from 21 March to 29 April 2017, with an official opening on 28 March 2017.
Featuring book and lyrics by Chandler Warren and music by Wayne Moore, the musical focuses on the basis of every love story, every romantic ballad, and every sentimental poem ever written - man meeting woman, they disagree, they resolve their differences, they fall in love. "Everything in the Garden is going according to God’s plan until the pesky Beelzebub adds the hunky Steve into the mix. Fun, mischief and mayhem ensues as Adam & Eve compete for Steve’s affections and God tries to impose some order on the chaotic love tangle that ensues."
Directed and choreographed by by Francesca Goodridge the production features lighting design by Richard Williamson, sound design by Django Holder, set and costume design by Roberta McKeown and musical direction by Dean Austin.
Tickets for both productions are now on sale.
