Afterglow this week celebrated its 100th London performance – and announced a final extension and closure date for the long-running Off West End hit.
The boys of Afterglow will now head under the shower for the final time at Waterloo East Theatre on Sunday December 22. By then the show will have played 131 performances over 17 weeks and received critical acclaim and two nominations for Best Enemble and Best Director in the Off West End Awards.
The play’s New York author, S. Asher Gelman, flew in to celebrate with the cast this week.
An international hit, Afterglow centres on Josh and Alex, a married couple in an open relationship, who invite Darius to share their bed for one night. When a new intimate connection begins to form, all three men must come head to head with one another’s notions of love, intimacy, and commitment.
The cast features Benjamin Aluwihare, Adi Chugh and Peter McPherson, with Kane Surry as understudy for all three roles.
Afterglowplays at the Waterloo East Theatre until Sunday 22 December.
