Mark Gerrard’s cutting comedy that was heralded as The New York Times’ Critic’s Pick when it ran in New York in 2015.

Also in the cast are Joe Aaron Reid (Dreamgirls, In the Heights), Michael Walters (The Inheritance, Death of a Salesman, The Sandman), Giles Cooper (Toast, Henry V, The Knight of the Burning Pestle, The Duchess of Malfi) and Nico Conde (Westworld, El Inocente).

Directed by Andrew Keates, 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.

Keates commented: “We couldn’t have assembled a finer cast to serve the European premiere of Steve by Mark Gerrard. Our rehearsal room will be a diverse playground filled with exquisitely talented actors synonymous with world class Musical Theatre and vital, groundbreaking LGBTQ+ productions.

“Frankly, it’s an honour to be their director and set the tone for the work and artists to be expected at the new Seven Dials Playhouse.”
