Bent was first staged in London 25 years ago. It has since been produced in over 40 countries, and made into a major feature film. In Graeae’s compelling new production, Director Jenny Sealey fuses audio description, sign language, music and physicality to create a shattering performance. Germany, 1934, and amid awakening fascist terror and the persecution of homosexuals, a surprising love story unfolds. From the seamy world of Berlin’s underground nightclubs to the stark horror of Dachau, BENT is a harrowing account of love, hate and prejudice, powerfully capturing an unforgettable chapter in recent history. “A play of importance, power and pathos which should concern us all.” The Guardian
