Taking to Instagram on Sunday, Egerton told fans that he was “completely fine” despite a “sore neck and bruised ego”. He then promised to be back “with a vengeance tomorrow night”.
The show, created by Mike Bartlett, first premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2009. It follows the story of a gay man named John (played by Jonathan Bailey), who begins to question his sexuality after falling in love with a woman named W (Jade Anouka). Edgerton stars as John’s partner M and is also joined by Phil Daniels as F.
