SOUTHWARK PLAYHOUSE: AFTERGLOW, the climax is just the beginning

When Josh and Alex, a married couple in an open relationship, invite Darius to share their bed for a night, a new and intimate connection is ignited. As all three men come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust, relationships are challenged and futures are shaken. A raw, funny, and sensual exploration of polyamory, commitment, and modern love.

Reuniting its original, record-breaking creative team, including director and creator S. Asher Gelman, international hit sensation Afterglow returns to London after sell-out runs in 2019 at Southwark Playhouse and Waterloo East Theatre, and following extended runs in New York, Madrid, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, and Mexico City, this new staging comes to London.

Darius to share their bed for a night, a new and intimate connection is ignited. Relationships are challenged and futures are shaken as all three men come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust.

The cast comprises Peter McPherson (currently appearing as Gareth in Hollyoaks, stage credits include Sweet Charity – Manchester Royal Exchange, Goodbye Norma Jean –
