Written by Tommy Murphy and directed by Adam Spreadbury-Maher, Strangers in Between looks at the highs and lows of growing up gay in modern Australia, filled with humour, tension and heartfelt confessions.

Talking about bringing the production back to the King’s Head Theatre ,Artistic Director of The King’s Head Theatre, and director Adam Spreadbury-Maher, said:We knew we had to kick off 2017 in style, and what better way to do it than to give London another chance to see one of this year’s best loved productions. The King’s Head Theatre remains committed to staging work by the best playwrights Australia has to offer and Tommy Murphy’s Strangers in Between is no exception!”

The cast includes newcomer Roly Botha returning to play Shane, Australian actor Dan Hunter plays Will and Ben and Stephen Connery-Brown plays Peter.

Tommy Murphy is an Australian playwright who is best known for his stage and screen adaptation of Timothy Conigrave’s memoir Holding the Man.
