Event details

State of Affairs

Freely adapted from Arthur Schnitzler's La Ronde by Ryan Gaydon this story starts with boy meets girl. But then boy meets someone else, and soon after, everyone's involved somehow... 

Outbreak Theatre presents a bold exploration of sex and love in the 21st Century. In this daring and innovative new adaptation, State of Affairs undresses the modern relationship. We meet ten characters from different levels of society, all united by basic human desire. 

Outbreak's production takes a fresh look at the deception embedded within our sexual exploits, and questions whether we really are that different after all... 

State of Affairs premiered at the Camden People's Theatre 2nd - 7th December 2014.
