Martin Sherman’s iconic play, Bent, is returning to London this July for a five week run at The Tabard Theatre after its phenomenal success at The Landor Theatre earlier this spring.
Originally presented at the Royal Court Theatre in 1979, the play took London by storm, transferred to the West End and has since been seen in over 40 countries and translated into at least 21 different languages.
1930’s Berlin: Decadent Max and partner Rudy are on the run after witnessing the murder of a German SA Officer who Max has brought home the night before. The couple flee Berlin to avoid arrest and subsequent imprisonment, however they are caught by the Gestapo and put on a train headed for Dachau the infamous concentration camp. What follows is a story of survival, love and self discovery.
Bent, ran for three weeks at The Landor Theatre to critical acclaim and sell out audiences. It now finds itself in its new home at The Tabard Theatre this July and August. Bent was nominated for various awards, including Best Actor (Russell Morton as Max & Chris Barley as Rudy) and Best Lighting Design (Howard Hudson) at The Off-West-End Awards.
In close collaboration with author Martin Sherman, the production is directed by Andrew Keates. Production team members include: Howard Hudson (Lighting Design), Freya Groves (Set & Costume Designer), Lee Freeman (Composer), Connie Glover (Sound Design), and Richard Hay (Fight Direction).
