Afterglow at The Southwark Playhouse

S. Asher Gelman’s international hit Afterglow returns to London in 2024. Following sell-out runs at Southwark Playhouse in June 2019 and Waterloo East Theatre later that year, the play is back by popular demand following the New York, Los Angeles and Madrid seasons. This new 2023 production is directed by Gelman.

Afterglow is a raw, funny, and sensual exploration of polyamory, commitment, and modern love that tells the story of Alex and Josh, a married couple. They are in an open relationship, and when they invite Darius to share their bed for the night, a new and intimate connection is ignited. All three men come to terms with their definitions of loyalty, love, and trust. Relationships are challenged, and futures are shaken. 

With casting to be announced, this new production reunites the original record-breaking creative team, which, as well as Gelman, includes set designer Ann Beyersdorfer, lighting designer Jamie Roderick and sound designer Alex Mackyol. Costume designer Justin Nardella, intimacy director Lee Crowley and casting director Anne Vosser join the team. Praise for the original UK production of Afterglow includes five and four-star reviews from London Living Large, GScene Magazine, WhatsonStage, Gay Times and Attitude.
