Following a successful run at the White Bear Theatre, it has been confirmed that Keith Stevenson’s comedy will transfer to the Trafalgar Studios from the 2nd May.
Things could not get any worse for Mitchell, who just lost his girlfriend, his apartment, and his job. With nowhere to go, he answers an ad for a roommate and finds himself in a West Virginia countryside motel with JD, an affable hillbilly of mysterious origins. Soon JD’s neighbours – curmudgeonly Flip, meth-head Marlene, and her hot-headed boyfriend Tommy – have all but taken over the tiny room. When the zany group find themselves in a hostage situation, Mitchell must decide to save himself or join this dysfunctional family and let his freak-flag fly.
Keith Stevenson’s play has become a cult hit with fans following its six month highly acclaimed run at the Pacific Resident Theatre in Los Angeles in 2012 – audience members returned again and again to watch the show.
Talking about the show the writer and actor said: “It warms my heart that this little story set in Appalachia has received a universal response from people of all colours and creeds in places like London and Los Angeles. They come to the theatre and a little over an hour later they walk out feeling better than they did coming in. They’re buoyed by a fortified hope that goodness and kindness still have a shot.”
The cast for the transfer of the production includes: Keith Stevenson, Robert Moloney, Alex Ferns, Michael Wade and Melanie Gray.
Meanwhile the creative team includes designs by Simon Scullion, lighting by Jai Morjaria and is produced by Wildcard.
Out There on Fried Meat Ridge Rd. will play at the Trafalgar Studios from the 2nd May until the 3rd June. To book tickets visit: ATG Tickets.
