Edinburgh Fringe hit Kids Play by Glenn Chandler has announced that it will transfer to London’s Above the Stage Theatre.
Kids Play is about the things a lonely boy will do for love. Theo is a gay 17-year-old student in need of cash. Greg is a married businessman with an odd fetish. When the two meet up in a hotel room in Brighton during the conference season, a financial transaction takes place between them, but nothing turns out quite as either of them expected. An emotional corkscrew of a play with surprises galore, the play takes us on an often hilarious and sometimes dark journey into the psycho-sexual needs of two lost souls on a hot summer night.
Kids Play is written and directed by Glenn Chandler, the creator of Taggart, the world’s longest-running detective series. Glenn wrote previous Above The Stag Theatre shows Fanny and Stella: The Shocking True Story, The Sins of Jack Saul and Cleveland Street The Musical. With his company Boys of the Empire Productions, he also transferred his recent Edinburgh hits Lord Dismiss Us and Sandel to the theatre.
Kids Play will be presented at Above The Stag from 18 September – 14 October 2018.
