Absolute Certainty at Kings Arms

Absolute Certainty at Kings Arms

Qweerdog Theatre’s latest play explores the relationship between two brothers and a best friend when familial secrets, a school-boy crush and drunken sexual discovery are thrown into the mix.

The writer, Stewart Campbell, directs three local actors in his first full-length production, Absolute Certainty? at The King’s Arms later this month.

All three young actors are graduates of ALRA North. Kyle Fisher and Sam Taylor, from Wigan and the third cast member, is Liverpool based actor, Samuel Kerr-Baxter.

Finn (Kerr-Baxter) is off to Uni, and Lee (Fisher), his brother's best mate, wants to teach him ‘how to have fun AND to look after himself’.

Deano (Taylor), a builder that lives for the weekend, is not so keen to have his younger brother cramping his style. Despite his best efforts to discourage their friendship, Finn and Lee get closer when Lee passes on a secret message from their estranged mother.

In environment where no-one is safe to talk about feelings, let alone sexuality, it’s easy to misread.  the signs One drunken night, a line is crossed; but by who? What actually happened? It’s difficult to find out when nobody wants to talk.

Qweerdog Theatre was created by Stewart Campbell in 2017 and joined by Daniel Waterhouse last year, both graduated from Manchester School of Theatre in 2017. This will be the companies third production, with the previous two being shortlisted for the WFTS New Writing Award, at Manchester Fringe in 2017 & 2018, OUT being nominated for Best Drama last year.
