Flat Out, the new comedy from Jennifer Selway about real estate, mice and adultery, will premiere at Highgate’s Upstairs at the Gatehouse later this month. Book you tickets for the laughter-filled show now!
Staged by Ovation, Selway’s farce runs from 31 May to 30 June 2019.
When Angela borrows her friend’s flat for a romantic assignation with an eminent QC she hopes for an afternoon to remember. Unfortunately that’s exactly what she gets… Throw into the mix a cross-dressing neighbour and an over-zealous cleaner to set up a perfect scenario for a modern day tale of adultery and mistaken identities.
Performers Stuart Simons and Grace McInerny return to Upstairs at the Gatehouse to star in Flat Out, having previously appeared in 2018’s Christmas production Nice Work If You Can Get It, as does Tom Pepper, who was in Crazy For You. Cathy Walker, Richard Earl, Jake Mitchell, Jennifer Matter & Hollie Taylor complete the cast.
The creative team is packed with female talent. Joining writer Jennifer Selway are producer Katie Plews, designer Emily Bestow and lighting designer Sarah McColgan. John Plews, who, with Katie Plews, is co-Artistic Director of Upstairs at the Gatehouse, directs.
Flat Out follows Selway’s previous plays Wallis, about Wallis Simpson, and Treating Odette, both of which previously play Upstairs at the Gatehouse. Camden New Journal described the latter as “a beautifully acted post-war costume drama”.
When not writing plays for Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Selway writes a regular column for The Sunday Express.
Flat Out runs at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate Village, London N6 4BD from 31 May to 30 June 2019 with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, matinees Sundays at 4pm. Tickets are priced from £18. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!!
