Premiering in the UK after a multiple-extended hit run Off-Broadway, where it sold more than 23,000 seats in a 69-seat theatre and grossed over $1million, Afterglow is a “steamy stripped-down look at gay intimacy’ (Huffington Post) coming to Southwark Playhouse for a strictly limited seven-week season.

Josh and Alex, a married couple in an open relationship, invite Darius to share their bed one night. When a new intimate connection begins to form, all three men must come head to head with one another’s notions of love, intimacy, and commitment.

Full cast and creative team to be announced.

Directed by Tom O’Brien, Afterglow will run from Wednesday 5 June to Saturday 20 July.
