|Get "In Bed" with London Theatre Workshop|
Autumn season of plays begins on New Kings Road
London Theatre Workshop, on New Kings Road begins its autumn season of plays today, September 15 with In Bed, described as a testing, funny and sexy piece of contemporary theatre looking at sexual objectifications and assumptions - through simple yet theatrical storytelling.
Two actors- Nina and Sean- spend a night together to rehearse a play… What you think happens, (or might happen), is maybe part of the "problem".
Co-produced by What Was That? Productions and Ex Nihilo Theatre Group, In Bed will run at Fulham's new theatre throughout this week.
Nina is played by MOBO Award winner, Allyson Brown and Sean is played by Adebayo Bolaji. In Bed is written, and directed by Adebayo, and is a co-production between Bolaji’s Ex Nihilo Theatre Group, and Alan Mehdizadeh’s company, What Was That? Productions.
Adebayo Bolaji & Alan Mehdizadeh have been friends (and collaborators) since 1994. They attended Drayton Manor High School where they performed in school plays and wrote their own material which they would perform in drama festivals. They remain close friends, and continue to collaborate together 20 years later.
Shows this week are at 7.30pm Monday to Saturday, with matinee performances at 2.30pm on Wednesday 17, and Saturday 20 September. The play is performed in one act.
The London Theatre Workshop, which launched in Fulham in spring, describes itself as a new concept for marrying commercial theatre, workshops, staged readings and education; together with a platform for up and coming artists and musicians.
Led by Artistic Director Ray Rackham, the London Theatre Workshop’s Artistic Policy is to create a hub for Artistic Innovation; through the reimagination of classic Music Theatre, the celebration of contemporary writing and reappraisal of 20th Century British and American drama.
London Theatre Workshop is at 65 New Kings Road, above the Eel Brook pub.
