Tom Wright's love story - Undetectable - gets another outing at Islington's King's Head Theatre - back by popular demand and opening the venue's Spring 2020 season following a highly successful run earlier this year.

Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE once again assumes the directorial reigns 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 - BBC; Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell - BBC), returning in their roles as Bradley and Lex respectively.

Undetectable is a love story for the post-chemsex generation and plays at the King's Head from 12 February to 7 March 2020 and tells the story of hunky dream boy Lex and bright spark Bradley falling for each other - big time.

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."

Hunky dream boy Lex and bright spark Bradley 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 ...

With wisdom, wit and honesty, this 'smart and topical' (Gay Times) play explores the intricate emotions, moral dilemmas and personal demons we all take to bed with us.
