AN EXCITING piece of theatre is returning to the world famous Globe Theatre in London next month and as far from Shakespeare as possible.

The Frontline by Che Walker and Matthew Dunstar is set on a Saturday night outside a London tube station where 23 actors overlap in a fast paced tale of modern London.

The play is hard hitting, dealing with London's overtly hidden drugs scene, but witnessed by the author some years ago.

The idea apparently remained dormant for a time, but the action he witnessed and the need for such a large cast to carry it off seemed for a while an impossible dream.

However, with Dunster, the play was premiered at the Globe last year and proved to be a very big hit.

It will be at the theatre from Tuesday May 5 until Saturday May 23, and there will also be an after show party which promises to carry on in the Swan and Globe bars.

The first new play in contemporary settings, The Frontline brought a new audience to the theatre.

Tickets are available by calling the box office on 0207 401 9919.
