The production will play at the King’s Head Theatre from the 13th March.
The King’s Head Theatre have announced it will be presenting the world premiere of Tom Wright’s Undetectable which will be directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair.
Hunky dream boy Lex and bright spark Bradley are falling for each other. Big time. After three months, Lex has decided that tonight’s the night… but Bradley’s not so sure he wants to go all the way. With wisdom, wit and honesty, Tom Wright’s bold new play explores the delicate emotions, moral dilemmas and personal demons we all take to bed with us.
Talking about the news Tom Wright said: “In these rollercoaster times, with so much happening and changing right before our eyes, the King’s Head Theatre has been a leading force in putting LGBTQI+ conversations on stage. We hope Undetectable builds upon that legacy by asking what’s next with a story of recovery, acceptance and hope.”
The production is set to star Lewis Brown as Bradley and Freddie Hogan as Alexis. Lewis Brown’s recent theatre credits include Tuck at Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre and playing the title role in an American tour of Hamlet with Aquila Theatre. He has previously worked with Rikki Beadle-Blair when he played D’Principé in Legendary Children of the House of Fierce at the Old Vic workrooms. Freddie Hogan’s theatre credits include Belarius in the National Youth Theatre’s West End production of Cymbeline, and Extra Virgin for which he was nominated for an Off West End Award for Best Actor.
Director Rikki Beadle-Blair said, “Tom’s writing is such a joy to direct; not only is it startlingly insightful and gloriously entertaining, but it speaks to this very moment in time. I cannot wait to share his wonderful play with audiences at the King’s Head Theatre.”
Undetectable will play at the King’s Head Theatre from the 13th March until the 6th April.
