Award-winning playwright Tommy Murphy's slice of Aussie life is back by popular demand after critically-acclaimed smash hit seasons in 2016 and 2017.
Sixteen-year-old Shane fled his rural hometown for the glitz, glamour and glory of Sydney's King's Cross. Adrift among the lonely hearts and hot boys, Shane attempts to navigate the troubled waters of his past toward a brighter future.
Strangers In Between is an unflinching look at the highs and lows of growing up gay in modern Australia, bursting with laugh-out-loud one liners, simmering sexual tension and heartfelt confessions.
Returning to the stage in the second part of the King's Head Theatre in the West End Season, Strangers In Between plays at Trafalgar Studios from 10 January to 3 February 2018.
Strangers In Between reviews
My first time to watch a small production, it left me nothing but a great respect and appreciation for the actors who are not only brilliantly amazing but a phenomenal craftsmanship. Very entertaining.
This was acting at its best; moving, engaging and creating a sense of wanting to know more about the characters.
An engaging and wittily-written three hander with a particularly fine performance from Roly Botha in the central role of Shane. Recommended.
This was an immensely enjoyable piece of theatre. The script is superb and the play is an absorbing melange of both pathos and humour. There is so much sub-text to the various conversations, you could watch the play three or four times and still discover new references. I cannot understand how such a brilliant play, with three outstanding actors (Roly Botha is a future star), is housed in the small studio 2 of the Trafalgar Studios, although the intimacy brings more enjoyment for us audience members. This play deserves a long run in the West End.
Great play great actors
