On a long, quiet train journey to Cornwall, James and Laura meet for the first time. Meanwhile, in the next carriage, Philip and Davina are looking forward to their first weekend away together, only to be confronted by Philip’s wife.
One of Those, a fast paced comedy by Tom Ward-Thomas, challenges the classical stereotypes of age and background and explores the exciting beginnings of one relationship against the desperate cartwheels of another, with scenes switching between the past and present as the audience views the stages of their relationship from different perspectives.
One of Those will premiere in a three-week season at Tristan Bates Theatre from Tuesday January 26th – Saturday February 13th, 2016.
Cast: Martin Ball (his West End musicals include The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Wicked, Mamma Mia and Top Hat); Louise Bangay (Folk with Tom Morris at the NT Studio, Trevor Nunn’s productions of Cyrano de Bergerac at Chichester and Rock ‘n’ Roll at The Royal Court and Duke of York’s); Tom Ward-Thomas (Tartuffe at the Canal Café Theatre, David Cameron in The New Prime Minister at the Cochrane Theatre).
