The production will run at the Dilston Gallery at the Southwark Park Galleries from the 21st September.
Rehearsal images have been released for Boundless Theatre’s upcoming production of Dawn King’s (The Trials, Donmar Warehouse; Foxfinder, The Ambassadors Theatre; Brave
New World, UK Tour) Addictive Beat, which will play for a limited run from the 21st September until the 7th October.
Directed by Rob Drummer (for Boundless: Natives, Confidence, Radio Elusia), with an immersive staging at Dilston Gallery in Southwark Park and new music from Anikdote, the production will star: Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk, Warner Brothers; The Children Act, BBC Films; The Duke, Pathé; Black Mirror – Bandersnatch, Netflix) takes on the role of Alex, a DJ, and Boadicea Ricketts (Grantchester, ITV; Call the Midwife, BBC; Bartholomew Fair, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse; She Ventures & He Wins, The Young Vic) portrays singer-songwriter Robbi.
Friendship and music connect Alex and Robbi as they hungrily chase admiration while facing their inner most demons. When playing around with a track, they make something gloriously
euphoric and wickedly addictive. However, with this new promise of potential and fame, the demons come ever closer. Both are forced to ask a crushing question: what is the high they are
really chasing, and is the come down worth it?
This new show is part gig and part theatre and explores creative obsessions, re-connecting with the world and whether chasing the high of being worshipped by millions is ever really enough.
Talking about the show director Rob Drummer said: “Kate Bush once said that music saves people and at its core that is what Addictive Beat is about. We all have that one song that can pull us out of the darkest of times and Dawn in all of her brilliance has crafted a powerful show about being young, creative and struggling with working out who you are. I cannot think of two greater actors to share a rehearsal space with than Fionn and Boadicea, who are going to blow our audiences away.”
The creative team behind the production also includes: Lighting Designer Jess Bernberg, Movement Director Ira Mandela Siobhan, Design Associate Kit Draper, Production Manager Rob O’Neil, Stage Manager Maja Lach, Sound Engineer and Operator Peter Buffrey and Production Electrician & LX Programmer Ariane Nixon.
