Tom Wright's Undetectable to open the King's Head Theatre's Spring 2020 Season

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

DUE TO popular demand, Undetectable, Tom Wright’s tender, funny and uplifting love story, is returning to the King’s Head Theatre.

Following a critically acclaimed, and highly successful run at the venue in early 2019, it will open the King’s Head Theatre’s Spring 2020 season, running from February 12 to March 7, 2020.

Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE will once again direct with Lewis Brown (Tuck, Wales Millennium Centre; Sense and Sensibility, US National Tour) and Freddie Hogan (2 Pints of Lager and a packet of crisps and Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, BBC), both returning in their celebrated roles as Bradley and Lex respectively.

Undetectable tells the story of hunky dream boy Lex and bright spark Bradley who are falling for each other. Big time. After three months, Lex has decided that tonight’s the night but Bradley’s not so sure he wants to go all the way…

Undetectable is a love story for the post-chemsex generation. With wisdom, wit and honesty, Tom Wright’s play explores the intricate emotions, moral dilemmas and personal demons we all take to bed with us.

Speaking ahead of the show’s return, director Rikki Beadle-Blair said: “Tom’s writing is such a joy to direct; not only is it startlingly insightful and gloriously entertaining, but it speaks to this very moment in time. It was a privilege to premiere the play at Kings Head in March 2019, and to now be returning to such a supportive venue; one of the leading forces putting LGBTQ+ conversations on stage is an honour. I cannot wait to share his wonderful play with audiences once again at the King’s Head Theatre.”
