Roger Ajogbe stars as Roland in Proud, Bren Gosling’s powerful new drama tackling racism and homophobia. He took a break from rehearsals to tell us more about the play.
After Invisible Me this month, playwright Bren Gosling returns to New Wimbledon Studio next month with his powerful new drama Proud, which was longlisted for the prestigious Papatango Prize and the Radius Playwrighting Prize in 2020.
Bren Gosling’s new play Invisible Me focuses on the life of three people who have recently turned 60. It is refreshing to see a show that talks about sex, life and relationships for the over 60s, given our culture’s obsession with youth. There is a strong theme of reinvention that I enjoyed, as it is good to be reminded that we can adapt and shake things up at any age.
“Very enjoyable and uplifting,” that how actor Andrew Fettes would describe both Bren Gosling’s new dramatic comedy Invisible Me (playing at New Wimbledon Theatre’s Studio from 3-11 September 2021) and the experience of rehearsing for his first role in a live theatre production post-lockdown.
Casting has been announced for new dramatic comedy Invisible Me by Bren Gosling (Moment of Grace, The Actors Centre; PROUD, Studio at New Wimbledon Theatre) which will play at New Wimbledon Theatre’s Studio space in south west London from 3-11 September 2021.
