From Tuesday 16th February – Saturday 12th March 2016 Four Play will be staged at Theatre503.
Exploring the muddy dynamics of faithfulness and infidelity, Four Play questions what it takes to make a couple truly ‘compatible’. How do you really know when it is time to settle down and when do you run for the hills?
Rafe and Pete have hit a rut. After seven and a half blissfully happy years, their lack of varied sexual experiences is driving them apart. When they proposition mutual friend Michael to help out with their problems – knowing full well Michael has his own partner Andrew – what seems like a simple solution quickly spirals out of control. What happens will fundamentally change their relationships.
Playwright Jake Brunger comments: “When Old Vic New Voices asked me to write ‘a state of the nation gay play’, I knew exactly what to write about. Despite gay marriage and adoption’s attention-grabbing headlines, it is fidelity and commitment that’s tearing our generation apart. With themes and issues that cross into straight relationships too, I hope that Four Play can be seen as a ‘non-gay gay play’ – with recognisable issues that feel disturbingly close-to-home regardless of who you are.”
