ALL THE BENS – Northern Elastic Theatre Company
Ben likes Al, but Al says he’s straight and isn’t keen on being stalked by a weird guy he’s just met off the internet. Al likes Henry, but not in THAT way. Besides, Al has other things to worry about. Like his girlfriend. And life. Henry likes numbers, especially the number 7. He’s also starting to discover girls. Trouble is, he hasn’t really discovered much about them yet.
When Ben meets Al, and Al meets Henry, that’s when everything changes.
Contains strong language and themes of a sexual nature.
First seen at Manchester’s 24:7 Theatre Festival, All the Bens is an engaging, witty and accessible 60 minute play dealing with themes of loneliness, desire, identity, growing up, special needs and internet meets.
It won a Manchester Theatre Award for Best Fringe 2013, the Audience Favourite Show in 24:7 Theatre Festival 2012, and the Vicky Allen Memorial Award presented by Equity.
