This is Imran's first project after leaving his role as Mitchell Drinkwell-Deveraux on the Channel 4 soap last November.
Rounding up the cast of this irreverent comedy is Jordan Laviniere, who previously appeared in UK productions of Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Rent and Hairspray, as well as Matt Greenwood, who appeared in Bohemian Rhapsody.
According to the official synopsis, the play follows Taylor and Riley (played by Jenkins and Laviniere respectively) as they've been living the loved-up suburban dream for nearly a decade.
"Nice house, nice town, nice group of respectable straight friends," the synopsis continues.
"But when financial troubles prompt them to rent out their spare room, it's not long before they meet Jamie and Parker [Adams and Greenwood] – a couple with a totally different outlook to their own.
"As tensions rise, wires cross and preconceptions are challenged, the four housemates will be tested to their very limits – and forced to reassess the lives they've built and what it is they really want."
Written by Hollyoaks scriptwriter Shaun Kitchener – who has worked on the soap since 2017, writing 32 episodes including the episode in February 2020 when Mitchell came out to his grandfather Walter – All That is a riposte to the idea that there is ever a 'right' way to be gay.
"The play explores different attitudes to love, sex and monogamy within the gay community as well as the importance of honesty – with loved ones but also with yourself," said Kitchener. "I hope it gives people something to think about on the tube home, whilst raising a few laughs along the way."
All That is the headline show in King's Head Theatre's hugely popular Queer Season and will run from Tuesday, July 27 to Saturday, August 21.
Imran Adams was last seen on Hollyoaks in November last year as his character Mitchell Drinkwell-Deveraux bowed out in some heartbreaking scenes.
After being blackmailed by Toby (Bobby Gordon) and Celeste (Andrea Ali) into leaving the village forever by incriminating him over Lisa Loveday's death, Mitchell crossed paths with his husband Scott (Ross Adams) and had to lie that he'd fallen out of love with him.
Mitchell coldly told Scott that he'd "given up" on their marriage, before turning around and sobbing as he walked away from his husband for the last time.
All That will be premiering at the King's Head Theatre in London on July 27 and will run till August 21. Tickets are available to book here. Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
