Thomas wakes up surprised and naked in a young man’s bed, and memories of last night’s one-night-stand come flooding back.

Sweet, sexy and gloriously silly, The Morning After is a sunny comedy for winter, written by Peter Quilter whose play End of the Rainbow was adapted into the recent hit film Judy. It is directed by Andrew Beckett, whose previous shows include Above The Stag’s pantomimes, Boom Bang-A-Bang and Offie Award-winning production of Grindr: The Opera.
