Strangers In Between

Back by popular demand after critically acclaimed smash hit 2016 and 2017 seasons, award-winning playwright Tommy Murphy’s slice of Aussie life returns to the stage in the second part of the King’s Head Theatre in the West End Season.

Sixteen year old Shane has fled his rural hometown for the glitz, glamour and glory of Sydney’s King’s Cross. Adrift among the lonely hearts and hot boys, Shane attempts to navigate the troubled waters of his past toward a brighter future.

Strangers In Between is an unflinching look at the highs and lows of growing up gay in modern Australia, bursting with laugh-out-loud one liners, simmering sexual tension and heartfelt confessions.
