Imogen Hudson-Clayton

A two-act play, written & directed by Paul Bradshaw, movement directed by Imogen Hudson-Clayton.

A semi-autobiographical family drama set in London. It centres around Billy, a white working-class boy that gets a scholarship to a prestigious sixth form college. It focuses on how he navigates his new school life and how the pressures from his family and estate life affect this opportunity. As well as being a play about class/identity the central story is a love story between Billy and Yousef, a Muslim boy from his sixth form. It focuses on family, loyalty, the class divide, London, sexuality and friendship.

Two Cities received its first premier workshop performance at the Criterion Theatre in 2019, and is set to have further movement workshop sessions in May 2021, with the play reaching full production later this year, into early 2022. Imogen has been collaborating with Paul in order to discover how the play might move and breathe. How Billy’s dreams might affect the way he tumbles through his reality, how moving between his estate life and college life might feel like he’s in conflict with himself, and how, for these two young boys to accept their sexuality in communities which don’t support them, might feel like death, or… being reborn.

Imogen Hudson-Clayton

A one-act play written by Paul Bradshaw, directed by Imogen Hudson-Clayton.

A semi-autobiographical, one-act, two-hander. It follows PB as he continually attracts straight/curious men with mostly disastrous results. It is set in London and shows a contemporary take on the lives of gay, bisexual and curious men in the city. The piece tackles issues including mental health, friendship, sexuality and consent and explores these through the immediate love affairs of the protagonist as well as a series of monologues looking back at his previous conquests.

This piece will be in rehearsals during July 2021. If you are a venue interested in programming this show, please contact Imogen via the form below. The production is also looking to build outreach partnerships & collaborate with charities who focus on supporting those in the LGBTQIAA community.
