New York City, 1940. A dilapidated house in Brooklyn Heights. The bohemian lifestyle of Benjamin Britten, WH Auden, Carson McCullers and Gypsy Rose Lee in the artistic community at 7 Middagh Street starts to unravel as World War II becomes a brutal reality.
Exiled in America for his beliefs and a national disgrace, Benjamin Britten must decide which way his conflicted political ideals lie but the constant parties, doomed affairs and John Dunne, the mysterious stranger, provide an easy distraction.
Based on true events, the World Premiere of Zoe Lewis's passionate and thought-provoking play takes place in the beautiful and unique setting of Wilton's Music Hall.
Starring Sadie Frost and directed by Oli Rose, Britten in Brooklyn plays for a strictly limited season of 21 performances.
