King’s Head Theatre, London, the award-winning producer of F*cking Men and 5 Guys Chillin’, presents the world premiere of Tom Wright’s Undetectable, directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE. Undetectable will run at King’s Head Theatre from 13 March to 6 April 2019, with a press night on Friday 15 March.
Undetectable is a tender, funny and uplifting love story for the post-chemsex generation. Hunky dream boy Lex and bright spark Bradley are falling for each other. 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 intricate emotions, moral dilemmas and personal demons we all take to bed with us.
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.”
Tom Wright added, “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.”
King’s Head Theatre’s Artistic Director, Adam Spreadbury-Maher, said, “New voices are the lifeblood of British theatre, so I’m very proud to present the world premiere of Tom Wright’s Undetectable directed by the extraordinary Rikki Beadle-Blair. Tom is a fascinating new talent, who in the wake of the chemsex epidemic, has written a frank, funny and beautiful love story with its finger firmly on the pulse.”
Undetectable will star Lewis Brown as Bradley and Freddie Hogan as Alexis (Lex).
