First performed at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles in 2017, later performed at theatres across the United States, Actually will receive its European premiere at Trafalgar Studios. As two university students decide to spend the night with each other, their levels of agreement about what happened on that night differ. With wit and urgency, Actually investigates the highly charged topic of sexual consent within the university sphere, as well as the complex intersection of race and gender politics, and what it means to ‘fit in’.
Yasmin Paige will play Amber in the production, with previous credits including Ah! Wilderness at the Young Vic. She is joined by Simon Manyonda as Tom, who has starred in Barbershop Chronicles and Alys, Always.
The play is written by Anna Ziegler, whose previous plays include Photograph 51 starring Nicole Kidman at the Noel Coward Theatre.
“Every single thing leads to everything else…” Amber and Tom, finding their way as freshmen at Princeton, spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy, and if unspoken, can it be called consent? With lyricism and wit, Actually investigates gender and race politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story.
