ERT is excited to be producing Kiss Me written by Richard Bean, writer of sell-out shows The Hypocrite (at Hull Truck Theatre and at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon) and One Man Two Guvnors in London’s West End.

“The East Riding Theatre has another winner on its hands.”  On-Magazine

Richard Bean’s new play is a beautiful and unorthodox love story about two people struggling to escape the guilt and ghosts of the past, set against the shifting world of London post World War 1.

Described by the playwright as a ‘forbidden love story’ Kiss Me is set in the late 1920s and sees war widow Stephanie desperate to become a mother. With little chance of finding a husband from the few men who survived the war, she instead makes a date with Dennis who has a rather unusual profession.

In a world where everything has been turned upside down by the ravages of war is Dennis really the answer to her dream of having a baby? What follows is a tender, humorous and compelling tale with no kissing allowed!

The play will be directed by Matt Aston whose recent success Touched at Nottingham Playhouse received outstanding reviews.

Returning to ERT’s stage after her excellent ERT debut in The Night Season earlier this year, Bettine Mackenzie takes the role of Stephanie and locally based actor Edward Cole, who worked at Shakespeare’s Globe theatre before returning to Hull, makes his ERT debut as Dennis.

Kiss Me by ERT ambassador Richard Bean premiered at The Hampstead Theatre in London before transferring to the Trafalgar Studios this summer.
