The Thrill of the Chase

by Philip Gawthorne

directed by Joel Waage


The Thrill Of The Chase explores a volatile, highly complex relationship between two lifelong friends; the carefree, womanising playboy Charlie, and the hard-working, timid Nicky, who share a stunning penthouse apartment in the heart of the city. When Nicky unexpectedly announces his intentions to turn his back on the bachelor lifestyle and marry his troubled girlfriend Izzy, the affronted Charlie suggests a perverse wager, which will ultimately threaten not only their friendship, but their very existence… Following in the tradition of David Mamet and Neil LaBute, The Thrill Of The Chase is a brutal, uncompromising, yet darkly comic exploration of masculinity and sexual politics. This is the world premiere of a provocative new work from the acclaimed young British playwright Philip Gawthorne.
