After wowing audiences at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009, “Wolfboy” makes a triumphant appearance in the West End this July with a run at Trafalgar Studios 2 that will bring it to the attention of London theatregoers. The show has been described as a psycho-sexual thriller concerning two boys within an institution who share an intimate adventure, with the actors set to take on lead roles including Paul Holowaty, Gregg Lowe, Daniel Boys and Emma Rigby. It is likely to turn a few heads when it arrives in the capital and will join many interesting shows for the current season at the Trafalgar Studios.
The show was originally a play from writer Brad Fraser and has been adapted into musical form by Russel Labey, who was behind another show at the Trafalgar Studios entitled “New Boy”, which also starred Gregg Lowe, as well as “Skins” star Nicholas Hoult, with further credits that include “Bugsy Malone”.
The story concerns two characters who have differing backgrounds when they arrive in the institution but soon share an intimate adventure. One of them is Bernie, whose status as a jock hid desires to take his own life – something that he has previously attempted. The other is David, a street hustler who claims to have harnessed the full moon powers of the wolf.
Actors Paul Holowaty and Gregg Lowe previously appeared in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe version of the show. The former is an ex-“Hollyoaks” actor who has also appeared in the likes of “Holby City” and “Coronation Street”, whilst the latter has made small appearances in “Doctors” and “Genie in the House”.
Their co-stars at the Trafalgar Studios take the forms of Daniel Boys and Emma Rigby, the former is an ex-“Avenue Q” star who was a contestant on the hit BBC series “Any Dream Will Do”, which sought to find a star for the musical “Joseph” in the West End. Emma Rigby, like Paul Holowaty, is a former “Hollyoaks” actress who played the role of Hannah Ashworth. Her work for the popular teen soap led to her receiving the Best Actress Award at the 2008 British Soap Awards.
Wolfboy makes its appearance at Trafalgar Studios 2 from Thursday 8th July 2010 (previews from Tuesday 6th July 2010) and runs to Saturday 31st July 2010.
