Step 9 (of 12)
by Rob Hayes
'Forgiving is easy, forgetting is a different story'
Star of TV and film Blake Harrison hits the West End stage for the first time inthis highly anticipated production of Step 9 (of 12) by Rob Hayes. Directed by Tom Attenborough, who most recently directed Port Authority at Southwark Playhouse which was Time Out Critics' Choice.
Joining Blake Harrison in his West End debut will be Wendy Nottingham, Barry McCarthy and Benjamin Dilloway.
Step 9 (of 12) is a macabre comedy that follows Keith, a recovering alcoholic, on the 12 step program to recovery. A lifetime of drug and alcohol abuse has given him a lot to apologise for - particularly to the two people who raised him from a child. But as the memories of violence, betrayal, lies and recriminations are raked to the surface, it becomes clear that begging forgiveness for past actions can have shocking repercussions in the present.
Step 9 (of 12) examines society at its darkest times in this new and provocative piece of theatre.
Blake Harrison is best known for playing Neil Sutherland in Channel 4's award winning series The Inbetweeners, which ran for 3 series and was subsequently made into a feature film in 2011.
Step 9 (of 12) is produced by James Quaife in association with Tom O’Connell for QNQ Productions.
James Quaife produced the award winning Precious Little Talent by Ella Hickson which opened at the Trafalgar Studios last year.
