Have you planned your post-Bank Holiday theatregoing? We’re counting down to the world premiere of Kevin Mandry’s EROS, running at the White Bear Theatre from 28 August to 15 September 2018. This brand-new play is set in a photographers’ studio – and we’ve got the pictures to prove it. Check out the rehearsal shots gallery below… and then get booking!
With one click, anything becomes an image, and image is everything. What happens when fantasy becomes more real than flesh?
Ross used to take photos of women. He says it was about beauty. Now Kate’s back in his studio after twenty years. She remembers things differently. She says she’s there for justice.
Noticing how younger generations have grown up in a world mediated overwhelmingly through screens, author Kevin Mandry wrote EROS to explores how this is increasingly corrupting many human relationships.
Set in the 1990s at the dawn of the internet, the show targets the moment when digital images first began to dominate our consciousness, and a younger generation began to feed hungrily on them. EROS brings to life the effects of society’s obsessions with beauty and conformity.
This tense three-hander stars Stephen Riddle as Ross, Anna Tymoshenko as Kate and Felicity Jolly as Teri, directed by Stephen Bailey. Rehearsal photography by Heather Ralph.
EROS runs from 28 August to 15 September 2018 at the White Bear Theatre, 138 Kennington Park Road, London SE11 4DJ. Performances (90 minutes) are Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, with Sunday matinees at 4pm. Tickets are priced £14 (concessions £12). CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
