American Trade, which rounds off the RSC's season of world premiere's at Hampstead Theatre, is a feisty new play by the RSC's Playwright in Residence, the multi award-winning Tarell Alvin McCraney.

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.

American Trade is a funny, uncompromising and outspoken play about survival, which challenges assumptions about racial and sexual identity. It is also a celebration of 21st century London in all its extravagant, confusing and dynamic diversity. The play will be directed by Jamie Lloyd.

The production is designed by Soutra Gilmour with lighting by Neil Austin, Music and Sound by Ben and Max Ringham. Movement is by Ann Yee.

Cast includes: Adam Burton, David Carr, Geoffrey Freshwater, Gruffudd Glyn, Kathryn Hunter, Tunji Kasim, Debbie Korley, Dharmesh Patel, David Rubin, Sophie Russell, Simone Saunders, Peter Shorey, Clarence Smith, James Traherne, James Tucker, Larrington Walker, Kirsty Woodward, Hannah Young and Samantha Young.
