“We’re human beings with natural urges! Why should we be so bothered about fitting a mould set out by a society that barely gives two s**ts about us anyway?”

In a bid to improve their current financial crisis, Taylor and Riley decide to rent out their spare room – and it’s Jamie and Parker, another young-ish gay couple, who are chosen to move in.

But it soon becomes clear that the two duos have very different relationships, and it’s only a matter of time before wires cross, tensions escalate and things get very messy in more ways than one…

All That, written by Shaun Kitchener (Hollyoaks, Positive, BAFTA Rocliffe winner 2016), is a timely look at love and monogamy; a funny, frank and razor-sharp examination of modern gay relationships.

Praise for previous plays:
“Akin to an exceptional sitcom, conducting the audience to laugh, gasp, groan and cheer in all the right places ****” – The Stage on Positive
“One of the most compelling productions I’ve seen in a long time… Impeccable comic timing *****” – Attitude on Positive
“One word – awesome! *****” – LondonTheatre1 on Christmas Farce

A West Avenue production

Shaun won the BAFTA Rocliffe Prize for Comedy in 2016, and recently joined the writing team on Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, with two episodes penned so far. His play Positive was performed at the Park Theatre, Waterloo East Theatre and the Edinburgh Fringe, garnering an Offie nomination for Most Promising New Playwright and a string of strong reviews. Shaun Kitchener’s Six Pack – a collection of six short comedies – played at the Leicester Square Theatre earlier this year for three sell-out performances. Shaun produces, writes for and performs in the quarterly new writing event Briefs, and other self-produced plays include Christmas Farce (Rosemary Branch), Caravan (White Bear), It Never Rains (White Bear) and One Night Stand (Edinburgh Fringe). Training includes the Royal Court’s New Writers’ Programme, Soho Theatre’s Writers’ Lab and the London Film School (Writing for Continuing and Serial Drama).

All That marks actress Jamie-Rose’s first full foray into directing. Since graduating from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Jamie has starred in two series of CBBC’s sketch comedy Class Dismissed, and worked extensively with Gaggle on projects such as The Gag Show (Etcetera Theatre), Lysistrata (Almeida Theatre), Yap Yap Yap (Wow Festival, Southbank Centre) and the one woman show Fat. She has also performed with her own sketch group Buttery Brown Monk, and worked with West Avenue on Positive (Edinburgh Fringe and Waterloo East), Caravan and Pin (both White Bear) and Christmas Farce (Rosemary Branch), as well as multiple Briefs new writing nights. She will soon be seen in the major motion picture Holmes and Watson.
