How are your nerves? Can they take the tension-piling, knuckle-whitening short new trailer for thriller You Game? Give it a watch, then book your tickets.
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.
Inspired by Anthony Shaffer‘s Tony Award-winning classic Sleuth, in You Game the previously 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.
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!!
