The play, which first premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in November 2009, will be revived by award-winning director Marianne Elliot (Death Of A Salesman, Company, Angels In America, War Horse) and will star Olivier Award-winner Jonathan Bailey (Company, Netflix’s Bridgerton) alongside Golden Globe winner Taron Egerton (Rocketman, Kingsman: The Secret Service & The Golden Circle), Jade Anouka (The Phlebotomist, Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie) and Phil Daniels (This House, Eastenders, Only Fools And Horses).

The play tells the story of a young gay man named John who feels torn after meeting and falling in love with a woman. Playful and candid, it takes a look at one man’s sexuality and the difficulties that arise when you realise you have a choice.
