Exhibitionists

Premiered at the new King’s Head Theatre in London 5 Jan-10 Feb 2024

A dazzling new comedy about love, sex, happiness and freedom set in the San Francisco art world.

When ex-partners collide at an exhibition, sparks fly and their new boyfriends are caught in the blast, igniting a series of comic crises involving a road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway that leads them to a mysterious hotelier and new beginnings.

Witty characters, outrageous behaviour and a big beating heart make Exhibitionists the perfect post-New Year pick me up.

Co-produced by King’s Head Theatre and Seabright Live, this world premiere is co-written by Olivier nominee Shaun McKenna (The Lord of the Rings – Watermill and West End; Ladies In Lavender – UK No 1 Tour; Radio 4’s Eleanor Rising and Home Front; the forthcoming The Forsyte Saga at Park Theatre) and Andrew Van Sickle, a journalist making his playwriting debut.

Directed by Bronagh Lagan (Flowers For Mrs Harris at Riverside Studios and the Olivier-nominated CRUISE).
