UPDATE: GH Boy plays two performances on 4 November. The production will then reopen on 3 December, with performances to 20 December.

The world premiere of Paul Harvard's debut play, GHBoy, will open at the Charing Cross Theatre next month. Tackling issues including gay culture and promiscuity in modern-day British culture, GHBoy is at Charing Cross Theatre from 4-28 November.

Set in East London, many young men are dying suddenly, with Robert grieving over the death of his father. Abusing himself with substances, Robert attempts to turn his back on a past life. But, can he confront the truth that faces him daily?

Jimmy Essex plays Robert, with the cast completed by Sylvester Akinrolabu, Geoff Aymer, Marc Bosch, Buffy Davis, Devesh Kishore and Aryana Ramkhalawon.

GHBoy was originally conceived during a writers' course at the National Theatre. It marks Paul Harvard's debut play, previously starring in The History Boys at the National and Gondoliers at the Apollo Theatre.

GHBoy is at Charing Cross Theatre from 4-28 November.
