Em-Lou Productions and the Drill Hall’s production of Mysterious Skin, which won two awards at the 2011 International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, is coming to London this September.
Director Peter Darney’s production – starring Oliver Walker, Harry Bradshaw, Julie Addy, Nicole Faraday and Dave Cutter – was a critical success in Edinburgh in 2010 and impressed Irish audiences this May. It runs for three nights at The Drill Hall in Goodge Street from 18 – 20 September 2011.
Scott Heim’s famous book, telling the story of how two young boys react to being abused in childhood, was adapted as a film in 2004, directed by Gregg Araki and starring Joseph Gordon Levitt. Darney, and cast members Harry Bradshaw (who played transexual Tamara in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks) and Nicole Faraday (from ITV’s Bad Girls) spoke to So So Gay earlier this year.
Ticket cost from £10-£12 and are available from the Drill Hall box office.
