London’s Charing Cross Theatre will reopen next month with the world premiere of Paul Harvard’s play GHBoy.
Set in the burgeoning party scene of East London, Harvard’s play tackles ‘misconceptions around gay culture and promiscuity’ and the ominous reasons some gay men are driven to heavy drug use and self-destructive behaviour.
Directed by Jon Pashley, it stars Sylvester Akinrolabu, Geoff Aymer, Marc Bosch, Buffy Davis, Jimmy Essex, Devesh Kishore, and Aryana Ramkhalawon.
GHBoy has set and costume design by Bettina John, with lighting design by Tony Simpson, sound design by Rona Castrioti, and movement direction by Gerrard Martin.
Capacity at the venue has been reduced to comply with social distancing guidelines, with 105 seats on sale for each performance.
GHBoy will run from 4 November 2020 until 28 November 2020, with an opening night on 10 November 2020.
