Got your tickets yet for the European premiere of Audrey Cefaly’s award-winning American two-hander THE GULF at London’s Tristan Bates Theatre. Watch these fantastic videos with stars Anna Acton and Louisa Lytton talking about the “two strong, feisty women” they play – and then get booking!
On a small fishing boat in the Gulf of Mexico, the divide between Kendra (played by Louisa Lytton), and Betty (Anna Acton) mimics the very world that devours them: a vast and polarizing abyss. Stranded on a boat together, they are forced to confront their differences and untangle the issues they’re faced with.
The message in society that a ‘significant other’, preferably of the opposite sex, is the answer to feeling complete and happy, is always present. Through bickering, insults, self-help books and physical and emotional game playing the audience discover, along with Betty and Kendra, the substance to their relationship and their future together.
THE GULF by Audrey Cefaly is an honest representation of the challenges all relationships can endure, no matter the sexuality. This European premiere production is directed by Matthew Gould and presented by M Green Productions.
THE GULF runs at London’s Tristan Bates Theatre from 17 April to 5 May 2018, with performances (90 minutes) Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, Saturday matinees at 2.30pm, Sunday matinees at 3pm and a special Friday matinee on 4 May at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced £17.50, concessions £15. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
“There’s a lot going on with these two women and it’s explored beautifully in this play,” says Anna Acton, well known to TV fans from EastEnders, The Bill and Family Affairs. “Anyone who’s ever been in a relationship will see echoes in their own life.”
“Harsh, humorous and honest” are the first three words that come to mind when co-star Louis Lytton thinks about THE GULF – the last is one Anna chose too!
