As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Wednesday 20 March 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will be at the King’s Head Theatre for world premiere production of post-chemsex drama Undetectable. Got any questions?
I had a blast quizzing Tom Wright and Rikki Beadle-Blair about their first collaboration, Tom’s debut play My Dad’s Gap Year, now enjoying a sell-out run until 23 February at the Park Theatre. So I’m thrilled to be following up with them both so soon on the world premiere of Tom’s latest play…
Undetectable is a tender, funny and uplifting love story for the post-chemsex generation. Hunky dream boy Lex and bright spark Bradley are falling for each other. After three months, Lex has decided that tonight’s the night… but Bradley’s not so sure he wants to go all the way. With wisdom, wit and honesty, Tom Wright’s bold new play explores the intricate emotions, moral dilemmas and personal demons we all take to bed with us.
Director Rikki Beadle-Blair said:
“Tom’s writing is such a joy to direct; not only is it startlingly insightful and gloriously entertaining, but it speaks to this very moment in time. I cannot wait to share his wonderful play with audiences at the King’s Head Theatre.”
Tom Wright added:
“In these rollercoaster times, with so much happening and changing right before our eyes, the King’s Head Theatre has been a leading force in putting LGBTQI+ conversations on stage. We hope Undetectable builds upon that legacy by asking what’s next with a story of recovery, acceptance and hope.”
In Rikki Beadle-Blair‘s world premiere production of Undetectable, Lewis Brown stars as Bradley and Freddie Hogan as Lex.
