Following on from the exciting news that the company will be moving in 2018 to a purpose built, permanent space in the heart of Islington Square, The King’s Head Theatre and Joe C Brown will present the West End transfers of their sell-out productions of Puccini’s La bohème and Tommy Murphy’s Strangers in Between.

Adam Spreadbury-Maher, Artistic Director of the King’s Head Theatre, will direct both productions, which will run at Trafalgar Studios 2 from 6 December 2017 to 6 January 2018 and from 10 January to 3 February 2018 respectively.[/fusion_text][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=”” /][fusion_images picture_size=”fixed” hover_type=”none” autoplay=”no” columns=”5″ column_spacing=”13″ scroll_items=”” show_nav=”yes” mouse_scroll=”no” border=”no” lightbox=”yes” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=””][fusion_image link=”” linktarget=”_self” image=”” alt=”” /][/fusion_images][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=”” /][fusion_text]

Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott’s reinterpretation of Puccini’s classic La bohème is set in present-day East London and delves into the lives and loves of Mimi, Musetta, Ralph and Mark. The production lays bare the damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a backdrop of spiralling rents and social media. The cast will include Becca Marriott as Mimi, Matthew Kimble and Roger Paterson sharing the role of Ralph, Matthew Palmer and Thomas Isherwood sharing the role of Mark, Honey Rouhani as Musetta, and Lizzie Holmes playing both Mimi and Musetta.

Tommy Murphy’s Strangers in Between tells the story of Shane, a timid 16 year-old who has fled his rural hometown for the glitz and glamour of Sydney’s King’s Cross, in order to escape his troubled past and attempt to establish an urban family. This coming-of-age, dark comedy looks at the importance of friendship and the highs and lows of growing up gay in modern Australia. The cast includes Roly Botha as Shane, Dan Hunter as Will and Stephen Connery-Brown as Peter.
