Paul Bradshaw’s tell me straight is to return to Chiswick Playhouse.
Following the success of its run at King’s Head Theatre as part of their Queer Season in 2021, the Offie nominated play will return to the venue from 16 February, with previews from 15 February, running until 26 February 2022.
The revival will reunite original cast members Paul Bradshaw, George Greenland and Stephanie Levi-John.
Paul Bradshaw said:” I’m beyond excited to be bringing tell me straight to the brilliant Chiswick Playhouse after our sold-out run at the King’s Head last summer. This play was born during the first lockdown in June 2020 and it’s come a long way since the first reading on Zoom!
“It’s a piece that’s incredibly close to my heart as it’s based on my real-life experiences, and it’s been such a fantastic ride so far. The whole company are out of this world, everyone involved is either queer or from a working-class background and that’s something I’m super passionate about as it’s important to have a company made up of the people reflected in the work. Representation matters!”

But it seems straight men are like buses…
