Friends, lovers, husbands. Relationships are complicated, so why not splash around in the murky waters of ethical polyamory?

Josh and Alex, a modern married couple in an open relationship, one night decide to share their bed with their massage therapist Darius. When a new intimate connection begins to form and the arrangement goes awry, all three men must come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust as futures are questioned, relationships are shaken, and commitments are challenged.

A raw, one-act play that ‘revels in nudity’ (New York Times) and explores the emotional, intellectual and physical connections between three men and the broader implications of their relationships in a ‘steamy stripped-down look at gay intimacy’ (Huffington Post).

‘Hit of the Off-Broadway Season’ (Theatremania) in 2017, this is a ‘highly charged and extremely sexual’ (Times Square Chronicle) portrayal of modern dating and relationships.

The climax is just the beginning.

Southwark Playhouse is all about telling stories and inspiring the next generation of storytellers and theatre makers. It aims to facilitate the work of new and emerging theatre practitioners from early in their creative lives to the start of their professional careers.

Through our schools work we aim to introduce local people at a young age to the possibilities of great drama and the benefits of using theatre skills to facilitate learning. Each year we engage with over 5,000 school pupils through free schools performances and long-term in school curriculum support.

Through our Young Company (YoCo), a youth-led theatre company for local people between the ages of 16-21, we aim to introduce young people to the many and varied disciplines of running a semi-professional theatre company. YoCo provides a training ground to build confidence and inspire young people towards a career in the arts.

Our theatre programme aims to facilitate and showcase the work of some of the UK’s best up and coming talent with a focus on reinterpreting classic plays and contemporary plays of note. Our two atmospheric theatre spaces, within the vaults of London Bridge Station, enable us to offer theatre artists and companies the opportunity to present their first fully realised productions. Over the past 15 years we have produced and presented early productions by many aspiring theatre practitioners many of whom are now enjoying flourishing careers.
