Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney Brings 'American Trade' To London

American playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is bringing his homiesexual themed play, 'American Trade' to the Hampstead Theatre, London for a limited run from June 2th- June 18th. 

When things get a little too hot for him in New York, good-looking, charismatic hustler Pharus escapes the clutches of rap star Jules and moves to London, where he sets up an escort business under the guise of a model agency, recruiting a diverse range of workers.

Mischievously demonstrating the pressures and absurdities of making it in the big city for locals and immigrants alike, the play throws a wry light on our society’s obsessions, from desire and control to deception and image.

American Trade is a funny, uncompromising and outspoken play about survival that challenges assumptions about racial and sexual identity. It is also a celebration of 21st century London in all its extravagant, confusing and dynamic diversity.
