Kenny Emson’s Rust, a new play about modern relationships opens at the Bush Theatre on 26 June prior to a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, and at the HighTide Festival Aldeburgh in September.
‘Rule number eleven: We don’t talk about them. Not here. They don’t exist here.’
Nadia and Daniel have a secret. In fact, they have quite a few. They’ve just signed on the dotted line for a studio flat. Under a pseudonym, naturally – Mr and Mrs White.
After years of school pick-ups, TV takeaways, and the day to day drudgery of married life, this is their chance to wipe the slate clean. But as much as they try and re-define the rules, and themselves, the outside world is closing in. Ultra-contemporary, sexy and funny, Rust pushes the boundaries of trust, love and lust to the limit.
Rust will be directed by Eleanor Rhode, and will star Jon Foster as Daniel and Claire Lams as Nadia.
Following the Bush Theatre run, Rust will transfer to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, appearing at the Assembly Roxy from 31 July – 25 August, and then to HighTide Festival Aldeburgh, appearing at the Pumphouse from 10 – 15 September.
