Afterglow is ‘The little play that could’. After its impressive Off-Broadway run of 14 months and 467 performances, it has made its way across the pond to the Southwark Playhouse, a theatre synonymous with fantastic shows.
S. Asher Gelman’s play Afterglow offers an insight into how complicated modern relationships can get – but doesn’t feel as convincing as it could do in this production.
Afterglow at Southwark Playhouse is a classy production but still slow, and because every scene change is like cleaning up after a particularly acrobatic shag, there are more pauses and longeurs than you might wish.
Full cast and creatives have been announced for S Asher Gelman’s Afterglow, the provocative polyamorous New York hit which gets its UK premiere next month at London’s Southwark Playhouse. Its strictly limited season runs from 5 June to 20 July 2019, with a press night on 11 June.
