The actor will star in the production which will run at the London Theatre Workshop from the 17th to the 22nd October.
Alexis Gregory’s verbatim theatre piece, directed by Robert Chevara will be the first production to take place in the London Theatre Workshop’s new home in Leadenhall Market.
Following a recent study, it was found that 25% of homeless and at risk young people identify as LGBT. Safe explores their untold stories.
Through the Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity that helps and supports homeless and at risk LGBT youth, playwright Alexis Gregory was able to interview some of the young people whose voices are so far unheard. From there, a theatre verbatim piece was created and formed of their testimonies, live music and poetry.
The show, which has had a successful sold out run at the Soho Theatre as part of Pride in London Arts Festival, will star Riley Carter Millington currently appearing in EastEnders as Kyle Slater. Other members of the cast includes: Laura Jayne Ayres, Michael Fatogun and Kit Redstone.
Talking about the production Riley Carter Millington said: “This piece has touched me and from an actor’s perceptive and it’s completely different from previous roles so I’m looking forward to exploring the depths of this character with Robert Chevara and Alexis.”
The production will feature live music from Tori Allen Martin (October 17, 19, 21) and Rudi Douglas (October 18, 20, 22). Meanwhile, the poetry used in the piece was written by Yrsa Daley Ward.
Safe will play at the London Theatre Workshop from the 17th to the 22nd October. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://londontheatreworkshop.co.uk/safe/
