‘Raw, brutal and totally brilliant’ - The Daily Express

The first major production of BENT, Martin Sherman's landmark play, in over seventeen years. This new production, starring Alan Cumming and directed by Daniel Kramer, also features a new song especially written for the show by Chris Lowe of The Pet Shop Boys and Martin Sherman.

Bent follows a personal journey from the cabarets and clubs of a hedonistic city to the inhuman excesses of a totalitarian regime, as a gay man discovers the true meaning of love and self-acceptance against almost impossible odds. A transcendent love story, Bent has touched a universal nerve in the more than fifty countries that it has been seen in and is now a standard on UK drama, history and literature syllabuses.
