Sex is easy. Intimacy is hard: Undetectable at the King’s Head Theatre

Undetectable, Tom Wright’s tender, funny and uplifting love story is back to open the King’s Head Theatre’s Spring 2020 season, after a highly successful run at the venue last year.

Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE will be reprising his role as director with Lewis Brown and Freddie Hogan both returning in their celebrated roles as Bradley and Lex respectively.

Undetectable tells the story of hunky dream boy Lex and bright spark Bradley 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 tender, funny and uplifting love story for the post-chemsex generation. With wisdom, wit and honesty, 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.”
