To celebrate Pride Month 2024 at King’s Head Theatre, they are proudly presenting OUTINGS. OUTINGS is a powerful, funny and soul-bearing play written by Matthew Baldwin and Thomas Hescott (The Act, West End). 

Conceptualised in 2014, this captivating and moving collection of true coming-out stories from around the world premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before touring, having an international run, and being showcased at the West End.

This show is a journey of thought-provoking, affirming, and gripping life experiences – by turns heartbreaking and hilarious – brought to life by the crème de la crème of performers the UK has to offer.

Some guests already confirmed include Tracy-Ann Oberman (Eastenders, Friday Night Dinner), Kate Butch (Drag Race UK), Jodie Jacobs (Rock of Ages, Kathy and Stella Solve a Murder), Samuel Barnett (The History Boys), Ian Hallard (The Boys in the Band), Linus Karp (Gwyneth Goes Skiing, Diana: The Untold and Untrue Story), Abigail Thorn (Philosophy Tube), Freddie Love (Just for One Day), Isabel Adomakoh-Young (As You Like It), and Olivier-award winner David Cumming and Nichola McAuliffe. Further casting is to be announced soon.

Outings is the perfect play to be producing over Pride. The play delves into the real stories of real people coming out. We are thrilled to announce our iconic cast, who will be taking the reins each night to perform and lead you through these heartwarming, funny and beautifully written verbatim stories.”

For this 2024 production, King’s Head has sent out a callout for new stories to be included in this play version. Writers Thomas Hescott and Matthew Baldwin will work with submissions to incorporate new coming-out stories ten years from the play’s conception through true coming-out stories. 

Through Outings, there will be funding for King’s Head Theatre and a collection for LGBTQ+ Switchboard Charity.

So, take advantage of this unforgettable event that honours love, authenticity and the spirit of Pride!

OUTINGS runs at The King’s Head Theatre on selected dates: 7, 9, 14, 21 and 28 June 2024.

King’s Head Theatre, Islington Square, 116 Upper St, The Angel, London N1 1AB, United Kingdom.
