Russell Tovey and Jaime Winstone star in Sex With A Stranger, February 2012
Two of British theatre's brightest young things are coming together to star in the new play from Stefan Golaszewski, the writer of two series of the BBC3 hit comedy 'Him & Her'.
He is currently writing the third season of 'Him & Her' and it is the show's male star, Russell Tovey, who takes the lead in Golaszewski's third play, Sex With a Stranger. Tovey, now easily recognisable, not least as a star of Alan Bennett's 'History Boys' (on stage and screen) and BBC smash 'Gavin & Stacey', is joined by English acting royalty's heir apparent, Jaime Winstone.
The play is a three-hander about Adam (Tovey), who is stuck in a relationship with an over-protective girlfriend, played by Naomi Sheldon, and who breaks out for his mate's birthday. He meets the beguiling Grace (Winstone) and ends up taking the night bus back to hers.
Sex With A Stranger is not a lurid exposé of indiscriminate promiscuity but a dark and funny study of what can happen when emotional ties become too tight to breathe.
Alongside Tovey's considerable CV, Jaime Winstone boasts numerous stage and screen credits, including the films 'Dagenham Girls' and 'Donkey Punch'. Naomi Sheldon has recently appeared in 'Daisy Pulls it Off' at the Lyric Hammersmith and 'Reclining Nude with Black Stockings' at the Arcola. It is a strong cast for a new, exciting work by one of our brightest young writers.
Stefan Golaszewski's Sex With A Stranger runs at London's Trafalgar Studios from 1st to 25th February 2012, with previews on 1st and 2nd February and matinée performances on Thursdays and Saturdays.
We have tickets available now, priced £12 for previews and £25 for other dates.
It is not a big venue and the production is expecting to sell out quickly. You'd be best off just booking here and now - the title is not the kind of thing you want to leave in the Google search history.
