A play dealing with the fallout after a drunken one-night stand between a lesbian and a gay man is to be stated at the Barons Court Theatre this May as part of an international tour.

It will be the London Premiere of ‘At Birth’ by Crave Productions, written, performed, and designed by Ty Autry, a genderqueer Southern US creative, and Thalia Gonzalez Kane, a queer, Ecuadorian-Canadian multidisciplinary artist, and theatre scholar. It runs from 16 to 20 May at 7.30pm.

Anna, very gay, and Isaac, very very gay, have sex to heal from a breakup. What follows is a journey covering themes of queer families, abortion rights in the US Southern states, and the pursuit of building community, no matter how untypical. This queer dark comedy aims to navigate blurred family lines, friendship, and dealing with the unexpected consequences life can throw at a person.

Ty Autry and Thalia Gonzalez Kane have performed in North America, Australia, and Europe numerous times, garnering multiple awards for their work on elevating queer voices.

Directing the production is Atlanta-based, award-winning director Melissa Foulger. Rounding out the creative team is Intimacy Director, Monty Davis and Dramaturge, Kat Sandler.

Tickets cost £10-£15 and can be purchased on the theatre’s web site.

The Barons Court Theatre is below the Curtain's Up Pub at 28a Comeragh Road, London W14 9HR.
