Above The Stag will be bringing Jake Brunger’s witty and comic play, Four Play to Vauxhall this coming January. A darkly comic play which looks at sex and commitment in the 21st century, Four Play will run in Above The Stag theatre’s newly refurbished studio from 15th January until 22nd February 2020. Exploring the muddy dynamics of faithfulness and infidelity, the play questions what it takes to make a couple truly ‘compatible’.

Rafe and Pete have hit a rut. After seven-and-a-half blissfully happy years, their lack of sexual experience is driving them apart – so when they proposition mutual friend Michael to help out with their problems, knowing full well that Michael has his own partner Andrew, what naively seems like a simple solution,  quickly spirals out of control.

Is it harder for couples to commit, now more than ever? Will Rafe and Pete survive the twists and turn of modern love?

Four Play also takes a refreshing and honest look at how relationships survive a digitally swamped world where conversations play out behind screens and love is displayed in a flurry of selfies. Peeling back the lid on how gay relationships work in a modern world inundated with dating and hook-up apps, Four Play finds a natural home at Above The Stag – famed for programming work that tackles these issues head on.
