The ‘heartfelt, hysterical, and sharp-witted comedy’ STEVE will make its European premiere in London’s West End 8 February – 19 March 2022 at Seven Dials Playhouse.
Steve illuminates LGBTQ+ relationships, both romantic and platonic. The play navigates the highs and lows of getting older, long-term friendship, monogamy, saying goodbye and being alive.
Joe Aaron Reid (Dreamgirls, Savoy Theatre; In the Heights, Kings Cross Theatre), Michael Walters (The Inheritance, Young Vic & West End transfer; Death of a Salesman, Royal & Derngate/UK Tour; The Sandman, Netflix/Warner Bros), Giles Cooper (Toast, The Other Palace; Henry V, The Knight of the Burning Pestle, The Duchess of Malfi, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Nico Conde (Westworld, HBO Entertainment; El Inocente, Netflix) will join Jenna Russell and David Ames.
Written by Mark Gerard, Steve invites its audience to join a group of middle-aged LGBTQ+ New Yorkers as they reflect on mortality, monogamy and musicals; with a Sondheim reference for every eventuality.
Seven Dials Playhouse’s production will offer audiences the option to book on-stage cabaret tables and indulge in themed cocktails throughout, in order to join the characters on-stage in a more intimate way.
Seven Dials Playhouse is the West End’s home for the development of professional theatre and artists. It seeks to provide opportunities for people to collaborate on bold, creative and high quality work while providing journeys of enlightenment and entertainment for artists and audiences alike.
