Tony and Greg seem to have love all figured out. They’re in a committed relationship, but with room for a little sex-on-the-side whenever it takes their fancy. Their only rule? Never sleep with the same man twice.

When drop-dead gorgeous cleaner Robert walks into their lives, the fragile foundations of their sexual contract are thrown into jeopardy.

It has been confirmed that King’s Head Theatre’s Artistic Director Adam Spreadbury-Maher will direct this first London revival of Kevin Elyot’s play that questions fidelity and the limits of love.

The play was first seen on the London stage at the Bush Theatre back in 1982 and now headlines the King’s Head Theatre’s Queer season, which will run from August until September.

As well as being directed by Adam Spreadbury-Maher, the creative team also includes set designs by Amanda Mascarenhas and lighting design by Nic Farman.

In a foreword written for Kevin Elyot: Four Plays he wrote: “From 1976 to 1984 I’d acted in several productions at the Bush Theatre and Simon Stokes, one of the artistic directors, had casually suggested i try my hand at a play. I presented them with a script entitled Cosy , which was passed on to their literary manager Sebastian Born. He responded favourably and, largely through his support, it finally opened on the 3 November 1982 under the (new) title Coming Clean.” 

Coming Clean will play at the King’s Head Theatre from the 25th July until the 26th August. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.kingsheadtheatre.com/
