New play All That on sale now after casting announcement

All That – West Avenue’s new play about sex, relationships and monogamy – will debut at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, Kentish Town, this June; with tickets on sale now.

BAFTA Rocliffe prize-winning writer Shaun Kitchener pens and performs in the comedy-drama, directed by Jamie-Rose Monk.

The play puts two gay couples – one in an open relationship, one not – under one roof; where wires cross, tensions escalate and things get messy in more ways than one.

The piece is a funny, frank and razor-sharp examination of modern gay romance; performed by a stellar cast of emerging talent. Christopher Cohen, James Robert-Moore, Tom Bovington and Roberta Morris complete the cast.

Kitchener said: “All That isn’t only exciting because it shares its name with a Carly Rae-Jepsen slow-jam. It’s pretty timely, I think: open relationships among gay couples are still a bit of a taboo – even within the community itself. I know I myself was quite ignorant about it all before I properly got going with this script.

“The play isn’t a holier-than-thou lecture, it’s a look at how people judge these sorts of things; and how misguided those judgements can be. It’s generally quite a light play but hopefully it’ll give people something to think about on the tube home.

“The cast and director are all absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to get started.”

All That is produced by West Avenue, whose previous work includes Positive (★★★★★ Attitude, ★★★★ The Stage), which was strongly praised for its tackling of stigma around HIV; and festive comedy Christmas Farce (★★★★★ – LondonTheatre1).

It plays from June 6-10 at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, Kentish Town, at 7:30pm. Tickets are on sale now from www.lionandunicorntheatre.co.uk.

New play All That for performance in June – casting now open

West Avenue will debut a new play this summer, about two very different gay couples living under one roof.

From the company behind Positive (Park Theatre 2015, ***** Attitude **** The Stage) and Christmas Farce (***** LondonTheatre1) comes All That, a new comedy-drama by BAFTA Rocliffe prize-winner Shaun Kitchener about love and monogamy; directed by Jamie-Rose Monk. Light and funny but with a thought-provoking undercurrent, the piece shines a light on a subject that’s becoming increasingly prominent – but not often talked-about.

All That is being performed from June 6-10 at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre near Kentish Town, for five performances only. Tickets will be on-sale soon.

In the meantime, casting is now open.
