Mike Poulton’s play Kenny Morgan returns to the Arcola Theatre for a limited run of four weeks in September, following a critically acclaimed premiere earlier this year.
London, 1949. Terence Rattigan is one of the best-known playwrights in town, but his relationship with the actor Kenneth Morgan is a closely-guarded secret. When Kenny falls into the arms of a younger man, emotions reach fever pitch. Behind the closed doors of a flat in Camden Town, the unspeakable is spoken – and the consequences are tragic. A gripping tale of destructive passions, Kenny Morgan exposes the limits to which people will go for love, and the extraordinary real-life events behind Rattigan’s most famous play, The Deep Blue Sea.
Kenny Morgan will return with its original cast which includes two-time Olivier award nominee Paul Keating. The production is directed by Lucy Bailey, designed by Robert Innes Hopkins, lighting by Jack Knowles, and sound by Neil McKeown.
Kenny Morgan will be presented at the Arcola Theatre from 20 September – 15 October 2016.
