The Hope Theatre, Islington, N1 1RL
Nude is produced in association with Forest Forge Theatre Company.
A new poem-turned play about love and fate – how two strangers can become lovers and how relationships grow and fade endlessly.
Heavily influenced by The Ruba’iyat of Omar Khayyam, this original play is an exploration of two people’s love for one another and how fate might play its part.
Love grows and fades, nearly always involves two strangers and, like life itself, is almost entirely unexplained. Fate, here, is personified. Fate is someone we all know.
Nude was commissioned by Apples and Snakes and was produced by element arts as a part of the SO:To Speak Festival 2015 where the play premiered in a 20ft shipping container in Southampton.
After its run at The Hope Theatre, Nude will transfer to Forest Forge Theatre Company in the heart of the New Forest before heading out on a tour of the South.
Nude runs at approximately 60 minutes with no interval.
