With a script by Dr Who's Matt Jones and 14 new songs written and performed by Kele Okereke, lead singer of indie band Bloc Party, Leave to Remain has plenty of talent behind it.
Described as a 'play with songs' it tells the story of Obi and Alex through a combination of movement, music and drama. They are a young gay couple, whose busy London lives are thrown into disarray by visa issues. Marriage seems to be the only way to give Alex leave to remain in the UK, but it comes with some tricky confrontations and conflicts.
Olivier nominated actor Tyrone Huntley returns to the stage after impressing in Jesus Christ Superstar (Regent's Park Open Air Theatre) to play Obi alongside rising theatre star Billy Cullum (Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Alex.
