About Bent

Bent follows one man's journey from the hedonistic cabarets and clubs of 1930s Berlin to the inhuman excesses of an oppressive regime. When Max (Alan Cumming) falls in love with a fellow prisoner he discovers the true meaning of love and self-acceptance against impossible odds.

The production has touched a universal nerve in the more than fifty countries that it has been seen in. Recent events throughout the world today have made issues of identity and humanity a primary concern. Bent addresses these issues with passion and humour.

The first major production of Martin Sherman's extraordinary landmark play in over sixteen years marks the return of Olivier and Tony award-winning actor Alan Cumming to the West End stage. Daniel Kramer directs this exciting new production which also features a new song, especially written for the play, by Chris Lowe (of The Pet Shop Boys) and Martin Sherman.
 
"Kramer - one of the most distinctive directors to have hit the stage in the last decade" - Susannah Clapp, Observer, 2005

"The audience's response was of a shattering intensity. The raw, brute force of the message is theatrically irresistible" - Michael Coveney, Observer, 1990
