Why See Afterglow?
The Climax is just the beginning
A runaway success Off-Broadway, S. Asher Gelman's exploration of a modern gay marriage finally makes its London debut this summer in this production directed by Tom O'Brien.
Following Josh and Alex, affluent New York City husbands with a baby on the way, Gelman highlights the blurred lines between love and loyalty that arise when they open their bed up to include a third. Noted for its casual nudity and explicit sex scenes, Afterglow is more absorbing than titillating as we see a non-monogamous relationship rocked by an affair, leading to questions about connection, love, and the nature of commitment in an open relationship.
Opening night: 5 June 2019
16+ Contains nudity and strong language

Fiddler on the Roof
A resonant slice of history...and a warm, absorbing folk tale that strikes unerringly at the heart with the timeless simplicity of its themes: home, family, love.
Come From Away
it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.
