The King's Head revival production of Kevin Elyot's first play is to transfer to Trafalgar Studios 2 next year.

The show, which opened at the north London theatre last year will run at Trafalgar from 9 January to 2 February 2019.

Adam Spreadbury-Maher's 25th anniversary production is the first London revival of the play, which premiered at the Bush Theatre in 1982. The piece is set in a Kentish Town flat where struggling writer Tony and his partner Grey seem to have the perfect open relationship. But Tony is beginning to look for something more like monogamy and their different attitudes to love and commitment begin to emerge.

The piece was written twelve years before his most famous play My Night With Reg, and won the Samuel Beckett Award for writers showing promise in the field of performing arts.

In a review for WhatsOnStage, Alun Hood called the production 'enjoyable' and said that it 'revels in period detail'.
