The European premiere of Steve at Seven Dials Playhouse has extended its run.

Due to popular demand, the comedy play starring David Ames and Jenna Russell, is now booking to 19 March 2022.


The piece, which marks the launch of the new venue in Covent Garden, will begin performances on 8 February.

Written by Mark Gerard, Steve illuminates LGBTQ+ relationships, both romantic and platonic. The play navigates the highs and lows of getting older, long-term friendship, monogamy, saying goodbye and being alive.

Alongside Holby City’s David Ames (The Temperamentals, Greenwich Theatre; I Am Montana, The Arcola) and Tony Award nominee and Olivier Award-winner Jenna Russell (Guys and Dolls, Piccadilly Theatre: Sunday In The Park With George, Wyndham’s Theatre; Fun Home, Young Vic), further casting will be announced in January 2022.

David Ames, who will play Steven, said: I am ridiculously excited to start working on this poignant, moving and hilarious script alongside Jenna Russell with such talented director and crew.

Jenna Russell added: “I’m thrilled we’re going to be extending our run of Steve, it’s such a gorgeous and hilarious study of friendship, modern families, loss, and Sondheim. I really hope you can join us – bring your best mates, and some tissues!”

Andrew Keates directs the production which will offer on-stage cabaret tables and themed cocktails for an intimate theatre experience.

Tickets priced from £15 are available online from

Mitchell Reeve, Executive Creative Producer, commented: “I am thrilled with the response we have received from audiences who are booking tickets so far in advance to catch the European Premiere of Steve and I am delighted that we are able to extend the opportunity for more audiences to join us in our Manhattan Piano Bar next year.”
