As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Friday 19 October 2018, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock returns to Trafalgar Studios for the European premiere of new American drama A Guide for the Homesick. Got any questions?
After the West End transfer of Milly Thomas’ Dust in September, I’m back at Trafalgar Studios for the European premiere of Ken Urban’s 2017 American thriller in October. It also happens to be my third post-show Q&A with Stage Traffic (after 3Women and Late Company) and my third with director Jonathan O’Boyle (after Dear Brutus and Rasheeda Speaking).
Can you confess your greatest fear to a stranger?
In A Guide for the Homesick, Teddy is searching for a friend for the night. Jeremy is searching for a beer. Worlds apart and miles away from home, two strangers, consumed by their own secrets, find each other in a hotel room in Amsterdam.
Jonathan O’Boyle directs Douglas Booth (Jupiter Ascending, Speech and Debate) and Clifford Samuel (McMafia, The Events) in the European premiere of Ken Urban‘s tender and bittersweet play about conscience and connection.
A Guide for the Homesick is designed by Jason Denvir, with lighting by Nic Farman and sound by Max Perryment. It follows Stage Traffic’s productions of Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company and Katy Brand’s playwriting debut 3Women, also at Trafalgar Studios.
For the Q&A after the 80-minute performance of A Guide for the Homesick on Friday 19 October 2018, I’ll be joined by writer Ken Urban, director Jonathan O’Boyle and stars Douglas Booth and Clifford Samuel.
