Arcola Theatre’s production of Kenny Morgan will return for just four weeks this September after a sold-out premiere earlier this year. It will run at the Arcola from Tuesday 20 September to Saturday 15 October 2016, with a press night on Friday 23 September.

This critically-acclaimed new play is the latest drama by Mike Poulton (Tony nominated for his Broadway versions of Fortune’s Fool, Wolf Hall, and Bring up The Bodies).

London, 1949. Terence Rattigan is one of the best-known playwrights in town, but his relationship with the actor Kenneth Morgan is a closely-guarded secret. When Kenny falls into the arms of a younger man, emotions reach fever pitch. Behind the closed doors of a flat in Camden Town, the unspeakable is spoken – and the consequences are tragic. A gripping tale of destructive passions, Kenny Morgan exposes the limits to which people will go for love, and the extraordinary real-life events behind Rattigan’s most famous play, The Deep Blue Sea.

Director Lucy Bailey (Fortune’s Fool, Old Vic; Titus Andronicus, Shakespeare’s Globe) revives her atmospheric production, which was nominated for two Off West End Awards (Best Director and Best Male).

Two-time Olivier award nominee Paul Keating reprises his title performance, joined by the complete original cast: Simon Dutton, Matthew Bulgo, George Irving, Lowenna Melrose, Pierro Niel-Mee and Marlene Sidaway.

Kenny Morgan is designed by Robert Innes Hopkins, with lighting by Jack Knowles and soul by Neil McKeown.
