The new two-person battle of wit and cunning, written by Sam Ra, comes to RADA Studios from 26 November to 14 December 2019.
An immensely successful screenwriter lures his wife’s lover to the house and convinces her to stage a robbery of her jewellery; setting off a chain of events that leaves the audience trying to decipher what is true, and what is fiction for the sake of the game.
Based on Anthony Shaffer‘s Tony Award-winning classic Sleuth, in You Game the male role of Milo Tindle becomes Bella Lanson. The shift in gender creates new challenges for the older screenwriter, Jack Guest, in addition to the elusive game play for which the original is renowned. Alice McCarthy, who is best known for creating the role of Alice in Jon Brittain’s Olivier Award-winning Rotterdam, plays Bella Lanson, with Ivan Murphy as Jack Guest.
Shaffer’s Sleuth premiered in the UK in 1970 before transferring to Broadway and becoming at film starring Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine.
Murphy Ra stages You Game in association with charity partner, Chickenshed Theatre.
You Game runs at the Studio Theatre, RADA, 16 Chenies St, London, WC1E 7EX from 26 November to 14 December, with performances Mondays to Saturdays 7.30pm, Matinees Saturday 2.30pm. Tickets are priced £30. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!!
