No Strings Attached

Indoor, site specific production of electrifying new play.

NOTE TO BOOKERS: This is a live production taking place at an indoor, site-specific location within Islington Square.

Don’t worry man, I’m good at keeping secrets

Aileen Gonsalves directs the world premiere of ‘magnificent new talent’ Charles Entsie’s debut play - winner of the Adrian Pagan Award for New Writing 2019.

This electrifying two-hander takes place in The Ignition Room; a site-specific location within Islington Square, just minutes from the King’s Head Theatre, offering audiences an exciting and atmospheric live experience. 

Within the charged confines of a car at midnight in an underground car park, a clandestine encounter between Boy (Shak Benjamin) and Man (Razak Osman) leads to far more than either had bargained for… 

Intense, powerful and startlingly original, No Strings Attached exposes the reality of living your life in the closet in working class London, and the lengths men go to keep their secrets hidden.
